Thanks Mazy you are really good to find all the pics. By the way. When he was in Germany for that charity event in 2008 the pics you posted above he did an interview with a German newspaper. 

Google translation below. Not sure if it's was posted before. Thought maybe you like that


GEORGE CLOONEY

That's why I have a heart for children!

Hollywood comes to " A Heart for Children " gala ! Tonight (20.15 clock , ZDF ) , George Clooney (47 ) present the "Golden Heart" of helpers in the war zone Darfur ( Sudan) . In the PICTURE movie star talks about his commitment to the victims of war and terror , about his family - and says why he would not move to Berlin.

BILD: What do you think of celebrities who do not engage socially ?

George Clooney : It's all up to you. No one knows what happens away from the public image. One is looking for a job , other kitten her family or care for their parents. I myself have just found that I want to dedicate my spare time to use for crisis regions.

Bild : How many times have you visited such areas ?

George Clooney : Three times so far . Darfur in Sudan , then across the border into Chad . Last year we went to Goma, in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Four weeks ago, we wanted to get there, but the UN has canceled the trip at the last minute - the fighting was too fierce .

Bild: If you leave the misery behind and fly back to Los Angeles - how you feel then ?

George Clooney : The first thought is "Thank God that I get out of here . " Recently it was in Goma that. We visited a hospital. There was a woman who had been raped and set on fire. And they had cut her lips ... If I climb on the plane , I thank God , not to have to live there . After landing, the guilt comes : that one time briefly dips its toe in the water , in all this suffering, always in the knowledge to be able at any time to pull it out again .

BILD: What was the most horrible experience in Darfur?

George Clooney : The systematic rape of women. Or even that a village not "just" is destroyed , no - the wells are poisoned. Thus there is every life impossible . It's not about land , it's racist hatred.

BILD: What did your mother say when you have traveled there for the first time - together with your father?

George Clooney : She was not happy. We should have fly down with a media company . But in Chad there was a sudden fierce battles, hundreds of dead ... The company backed out two days before the departure . We found the rather weak. Then I thought , maybe we should really leave it. But my Dad said : By no means - we go ! My mother was not amused .

Bild : As today how is the situation in Darfur?
George Clooney : It is more and more a humanitarian catastrophe. The focus is no longer the genocide , the active , daily killing of hundreds of people and the destruction of their habitat . Now it comes to the two million people in refugee camps , which are constantly at risk.

Bild : You saw the children there. Did you never to adopt the need to take them home ?

George Clooney : Adopt , no. I think other people have better educational skills than I do. But take care of the children, of course . We have, for example, a hospital in southern Sudan constructed for 15 000 people.

BILD: What is the help that you need?

George Clooney : Sometimes total " unsexy " . 15 helicopters , for example , the transport of food or peacekeepers. But that's expensive. And yes we are experiencing at the time a major financial crisis ...

Bild : Makes you a spanner in the works ?

George Clooney : Yes. I mean - of course , the hedge fund guys stuck " Not on our watch" (note "not in our field of vision " - the organization of George Clooney) is now no longer half a million dollars . But it is not just about financial aid. We need sustainable diplomacy in Africa , senior full-time agents who are not always flown only during crises .

Bild : In the " A Heart for Children " gala , you should receive the "Golden Heart" . You would prefer to helpers , such as the " AMEL Center " , hand over ...

George Clooney : Yes, they are incredibly brave people . They take care of victims of torture in Sudan.

Bild : Still - why you did not want the award ?

George Clooney : You know , people are just too nice to me. If I had something to do with the end of the Sudan conflict , okay . But it does not end there . We still had no success. Don Cheadle, Matt Dillon, Brad Pitt, I - sometimes we accept prices in order to get a stage for our goals. But when I was honored last year by the Nobel Peace Prize , I felt it was undeserved. So I want the "Golden Heart" to reach people who risk their lives every day .

Bild : If we receive actually a serious answer to the question of whether you just have a girlfriend?

George Clooney : (laughs) No .

BILD : What does family mean to you?

George Clooney : A lot . My parents, my sister, her children ... I'm lucky because my parents are still so young and active. My father has been teaching this year journalism at the " American University " in Washington. Hilarious - at the beginning they wanted to have a curriculum of him and so loud stuff. He looked at me and asked: Can not I just be "charming " ? It seems to have worked , he has great fun . We all have a close relationship. I also have my " Family of Friends" in Los Angeles.

Bild : So no plans to move to Berlin ?

George Clooney : No plans , no. I need warmer climes . ( laughs) The older I get .

PAN this is all I found about a hospital but I found something very impressive about space I am putting in own thread.

George Clooney Shines The Limelight Light On Africa

Feb. 1, 2008
By TANYA RIVERO, MARIECAR FRIAS and OLIVIA STERNS
TANYA RIVEROMORE FROM TANYA »

Anchor/ Correspondent, ABC News NOW
via
Academy Award-winning actor George Clooney became the ninth U.N. messenger of peace Thursday, promising to "shine a light" on crises around the world, particularly in Africa.
Currently nominated for another Oscar for his role in the movie "Michael Clayton," Clooney is as hot as Hollywood gets, but he says the honor he just received from the United Nations might top anything Tinseltown could offer.

"An Oscar's a nice thing to have in your life, but this isn't just sort of an honor, it's a responsibility," Clooney told the BBC.
"So far it's been mostly just traveling to places that are a little rough. You know, I think what it really — I think what they're looking to gain from it is, cameras following me to places that they're trying to get attention to and that's fine. That's a good use of celebrity if you ask me," Clooney told ABC News' Tanya Rivera after the ceremony Thursday.

In his new role as the U.N. messenger of peace, Clooney spent two weeks in Chad, Darfur and the Congo. He just returned.
Clooney described his frustration at what he saw. "You get off the plane and suddenly you're in another world and there's tragedy everywhere. … They're trying in the U.N., they're trying in the United States, they're trying in other countries but nobody's really succeeding yet."

Darfur
Early this year Clooney co-founded Not on Our Watch with his celebrity friends and "Ocean's 13" co-stars Brad Pitt, Jerry Weintraub, Matt Damon and Don Cheadle, to help bring attention to the genocide in Darfur. The group continues to work to raise awareness, but Clooney says progress is hard to measure.

"It's hard to explain. … Darfur isn't necessarily a lot better. Chad certainly isn't a lot better. But there are signs, there's movement, there's this new troop, they're not funded well yet. But there is a hope," Clooney said, referring to the joint U.N.-African Union peacekeeping force that was deployed to Darfur in late 2007.

One of the things the group has been able to accomplish is setting up a hospital. "You know, that's sort of a mean thing we do," Clooney said jokingly. "We put together a hospital, we finance it and we give it to someone as a birthday present who has a lot of money and we put their name on it. And then they just have to continually fund it for the rest of the time just out of guilt."

Clooney hopes that his involvement will encourage people to take action.


"You can, through church groups and organizations, you can go through any NGO you want … you can pick up the phone or you can pick up your e-mail or you can, you know, write a letter directly to your senator and you can really make a difference because that does actually matter to the people. It empowers them."
Politics

Back in the states, Clooney is supporting Sen. Barack Obama for president, but says he won't be joining him on the trail.
"I've been, a good friend and a very big supporter of his. I'm a big believer in him and so much so. And I've said this before, but I mean it, that I won't come out and endorse anybody. My father ran for Congress and my mother was a mayor, my grandfather was a mayor. I understand politics fairly well and I also understand that Hollywood doesn't necessarily help a candidate."

So it's not likely that this Hollywood sweetheart will follow in the footsteps of some of his relatives or actors like Ronald Regan and Fred Thompson.

"No, you know, honestly, really, no. I know people sort of look at that and say, well, maybe there's politics. I'm not, I'm not diplomatic enough."
