El actor, uno de mis favoritos, lleva varios meses ayudando a la población in situ y ha creado para ello en la isla una organización que se encarga de suministrar provisiones, medicinas, filtros de agua y comida a un campamento donde se hacinan 45.000 refugiados. El actor ha declarado que es importante que Haití se desarrolle de nuevo y cree que el país podrá ser reconstruido y renacer de sus cenizas.
A few days ago, I wrote about the significant labor some actors make by reminding us conficts, wars, natural catastrophes and injustices. That day I refered to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt visiting Bosnia to show us how the refugees of a war, that took place fourteen years ago, are still homeless and living under deplorable conditions. Today I want to praise the work of Sean Penn in Haiti.
This actor, one of my favourites, has being helping population in situ for several months now. He's created an organization, which contributes by supplying a camp whith 45.000 refugees with provisions, medicines, water filters and food. Penn's has declared that it is important Haiti develops again, he thinks this country can be reconstructed, be reborn.
Shakira, Susan Sarandon and Demi Moore have visited this camp to get to know more about his humanitarian activity. Recently, they've had to expand and have created a hospital to look after sexually attacked women in the island. These atrocities have become very frequent after the earthquake.
It is not the first time Sean Penn gets involved with this disasters, Mystic River's actor helped with tasks as searching for survivors at New Orleans after Katrina's.
