Damon's African Project

Damon's African Project

Everyday someone new is helping Africa. What a great trend! It's amazing the amount of celebrities who have come out to support various causes. Now Matt Damon has announced his latest venture. He wants clean water for Africa. We knew he had been working on charity events like the one where one lucky lady even got to kiss Brad but now we know more about Matt's latest do good deed. Here's more:

Matt Damon went to the Sahara Desert to scout locations for a movie about long-distance runners. But when he got there, he took on another project: helping bring clean water to Africa.

Damon and the production team behind the upcoming documentary "Running the Sahara" created a charity to accompany their filmmaking expedition in Africa, which gets under way this month.

During his preliminary visit to the continent, Damon, 36, said he "saw firsthand the effects of one of the largest public health issues of our time — the world water crisis which is at its worst in Africa."

I think it's great some of our celebs are trying to help Africa considering some people in Government are not trying as hard.
