Mia Farrow’s Mission: Raising aid and awareness for victims of conflict through music / 22 Jan 2007 MIA FARROW: "We wanted the Requiem to be not just for those who have died in Darfur since the genocide began, but also to honor the people who are still struggling there, and suffering there." "We have 30 orchestras who have participated; the great orchestras of the world have volunteered members. The message behind the whole evening is: Verdi’s Requiem is one of sorrow, but also leaves one with hope. Because we can’t afford to be hopeless now; it’s about making our voices louder, about helping more, about bringing an end to a genocide, even as we honor the dead, even as we deeply respect those who are there in this their hour of suffering, and those humanitarians who are putting their own lives on the line --UNICEF and other NGOs, 12 of them have died since June -- so we want to bring focus to that, we want to honor them in an appropriate way and in a realistic way we want to help support their efforts." "Being there absolutely transformed me. I understood – I mean I had traveled with UNICEF before and I was no stranger to human suffering, but I had not seen the kind of atrocities committed against an innocent people on this scale by their own government and the janjaweeds that they enlisted.

She had been displaced three times. When her village was first burned she was holding her baby in her arms when the janjaweed attacked. And she held on to her baby, and she felt compelled to tell me how she did her best to hold onto that baby, but he was torn from her arms anyway and bayoneted before her eyes. That day three of her five children were slaughtered. Halima said, ‘Janjaweed, they cut them up and they stuff them into the well.’ And she said – she clasped my two hands, and she said, ‘Tell people what is happening here, tell them we are all being slaughtered, tell them we need help.’ And for Halima, and for all the courageous women of Darfur, I carry this message in my heart. Even before water and food, which are desperately needed, and basic medical attention, which is virtually non-existent across Darfur, above all, the plea was for protection. So, whatever it takes to get that peacekeeping force in to provide protection -- that is my first mandate. So, that I go into a risky situation is nothing, our humanitarian workers are there, risking their own lives on a daily basis so the very least I can do is to go with the great privilege that UNICEF has given me to go to these…to go across all of Darfur. And I suppose it’s probably because I am a UNICEF Ambassador that I was allowed to travel along the Darfur border with e
