Clooney & Farrow Step Up Darfur Aid Campaign

Hollywood activists GEORGE CLOONEY and MIA FARROW are stepping up their campaigns to publicise the plight of refugees in the Sudan with a series of visits to the country's war torn Darfur region.
Clooney has been at the helm of a campaign to highlight the continued bloody conflict in the country, which is thought to have killed millions of innocent refugees.
Meanwhile, Farrow uses her role as a goodwill ambassador for the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) to try and increase aid for Sudanese children affected by the bloodshed.
In a continued bid to help the refugees affected, Farrow has returned from a three-week fact-finding mission, just as Clooney is preparing to make his fifth visit to Darfur and eastern Chad.
Clooney says, "It is the right time to be here to support the people. We are waiting for the indictment of (Sudan President) Omar al-Beshir."
Beshir is awaiting a decision by the International Criminal Court on whether a warrant for his arrest will be issued. He has been accused of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.
