Michael Sheen visits Chad for UNICEF

From WENN.com

The Queen actor was joined by celebrities including Will Ferrell, Mike Myers, Gerard Butler and event co-founder Robbie Williams for the all-star fundraising match in Manchester, England last May (12).

The game raised $7.8 million for the UNICEF children's charity, and Sheen recently travelled to Chad to see how the money has helped residents.

Sheen met a group of kids and filmed a video urging fans to be aware of the famine crisis facing the country.

He says, ""Child hunger is the greatest scandal of our age. Two million children die each year because of malnutrition, yet we produce enough food for everyone.

""The problem isn't that there's a shortage of food, the problem is that the hungry children don't get the food they need to live. We can change this - child suffering and death is preventable if we can persuade our governments to act. As a UNICEF supporter, I'm asking you to tackle child hunger. Please, act now.""
