ABC News: Ben Affleck's Journey Through the Congo.
Actor, writer, producer and director Ben Affleck traveled to Africa's Congo region three times over the last eight months, hoping to understand firsthand one of the world's worst humanitarian crises of this century.
"Congo is in terrible shape," Affleck said. "What's going on [in Congo] is humanitarian disaster."
Affleck says the mission of his journey was to help people understand that the situation "could have a real ripple effect down the road" and hoped that his video essay "will be one small incremental step in that."
