The WALL STREET star, Moby, Nobel laureate ELIE WIESEL and singer ANGELIQUE KIDJO joined UN Secretary-General KOFI ANNAN at a fundraising dinner to promote an international drive to rid the world of landmines in 82 countries. Douglas, a UN Messenger for Peace, presented Annan with an Adopt-A-Minefield's humanitarian award. Douglas said, "Tens of thousands of lives have been saved and millions more improved as a result of the decision and commitment of this man and the inspiration that he leads. "The United Nations is the leading international body working to make the problem of land mines a history lesson for our children."
