Along with Today Show correspondent Ann Curry, George Clooney visited Southern Sudan this week before a vote took place that could result in the nation's independence and a possible civil war.
"If you knew a tsunami, or Katrina or a Haiti earthquake was coming, what would you do to save people?" asked Clooney.
The actor has visited a mass grave from 2008, slept in a hut with "frogs in the toilet…bugs the size of small countries on the beds" and traveled through the unstable border of North and South Sudan.
"In 100 days, people here will vote on whether to secede from the rest of Sudan, and war, even genocide is predicted," wrote Curry, referring to the area as "one of the most desperate places on Earth."
