Hunger Games actor Jeffrey Wright is taking a stand against Ebola.
The actor has been working in Africa for over a decade. When he’s not filming the latest installment in The Hunger Games series, he’s running one of his two African Projects. Wright is the brains behind both Taia Lion Resources Inc. and Taia Peace Foundation. The first is a gold exploration company, the second is a foundation aiding social development efforts in Sierra Leone.
“We were obviously concerned when we heard the initial reports,” Wright said. “The epicenter of the outbreak is a town called Gueckedou, Guinea, about 40 kilometers from the border with Penguia chiefdom in Sierra Leone, where the focus of my company and foundation’s activities have been for over a decade.”
Wright was moved to start his companies after filming Ali in Africa. He began Taia Lion Resources Inc. in an effort to keep money from Africa’s natural resources in Africa. Since news of the outbreak, Jeffrey has been monitoring the situation closely, as many of his staffers are at high risk of exposure.
“My concern is as much with the people we work with directly as it is with the larger population of Sierra Leone,” he said. “One of the enablers for the historic proportions of the outbreak is that in the rural areas of Sierra Leone and Guinea and Liberia, there’s essentially zero medical infrastructure in place. Zero.”
