Sienna Miller in the Democratic Republic of Congo

Sienna Miller is taking a trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo with International Medical Corps to raise awareness of the conflict in the region and it’s impact on women and children. Thanks so much to Mike for this information.

You can read her full blog about her travels here and excerpts from her blog plus more pictures here.

This is such a wonderful thing for her to be doing, and, as a fan, I am so proud of her doing this. You can learn more about the issues in the Congo by exploring the sites whose links I posted above.

Sienna Miller Online

“I guess it’s important to clarify why I’m here. International Medical Corps is an incredible organization that is providing healthcare and support to people in dire need. I met with them in Los Angeles two months ago and they approached me to see if and how I could help in anyway. They desperately need funding and general awareness raised both for the organization, and for all the projects they are involved with. If my involvement in any way could contribute to either then I was more than happy to be involved. My one request was that if we were going to start working together, it was imperative, that I see and experience what is going on first hand….So here I am.”

    Lets be frank here, this is all about damage control, her reputation is in tatters, if she had done this before the affair with Getty I would have had some respect for her, but somebody who has no respect for another woman’s marriage and here children is not somebody I have any time or respect for. Also Getty is the main culprit here but Miss Miller had a part to play as well. This running of to the Congo has not changed my feeling towards her at all. But I do have a lot of respect for the people who run this organisation and would like to help but I am off to Sri Lanka soon and I think my time is best served there, no Miss Miller. Who the heck thought of getting her involved in this project.

    What kind of person involves Sienna Miller in this project needs their head seeing to, a woman that is periodically drunk and thinks more of her clothes than anybody I know. I hope there are no married men in he group. Has nobody at IMC seen the photo’s of Miss Miller and Mr. Getty having sex on the beach etc while Mrs Getty was home looking after the children thinking her husband was visiting his mother. The Congo needs help not hindrance.

    Wow, such judgment! We’re all complex beings with good parts and bad. I give her credit for doing her part to bring attention to a horrible situation. And let’s all remember that what we read in the tabloids is never the full story.
