Matt Damon was so stunned by the reality of Africa's water crisis during a recent location-finding trip to the Sahara Desert, he launched a new initiative to fight the growing problem. The actor, alongside the production team for upcoming documentary RUNNING THE SAHARA, set up H2OAfrica in a bid to raise awareness and support much-needed clean-water programs. Damon says he "saw firsthand the effects of one of the largest public health issues of our time - the world water crisis which is at its worst in Africa."
