Movie Stars Shocked By African Poverty
Screen stars RALPH FIENNES and RACHEL WEISZ were so shocked by the poverty prevalent in rural Kenya while filming upcoming movie THE CONSTANT GARDENER, they set up a trust find to provide aid in the towns which appear in the film.
SCHINDLER'S LIST heart-throb Fiennes and CONSTANTINE actress Weisz joined cast and crew in contributing to The Constant Gardener Trust which has already funded a much needed bridge, schooling costs, road building and community groups in east Kenya.
Producer SIMON CHANNING-WILLIAMS says, "These are places were people are seriously, seriously poor and deprived, and water is at a dreadful premium.
"A lot of people on the film were astounded by what they saw and wanted to do something."29/07/2005 02:03
