Over the past few years, Ben has committed himself to rectifying the TERRIBLE situation in the eastern Congo.
For those who don't know, the area has been ravaged by war, poverty, and political strife for way too long.
In 2010, Affleck founded the Eastern Congo Initiative, which aims to "support survivors of rape and sexual violence; return and reintegrate child soldiers into their communities, increase access to health care and education; and to promote economic opportunity."
Wow, this award couldn't be more deserved!
Thanks for all you do, Ben!
