Darfur Fast for Life

We fast in solidarity with the hungry and starving in Darfur and for lasting peace in Sudan

Mia’s end of fast message.

May 08, 2009 By: Admin Category: Mia Farrow

I have been instructed by my doctor to stop my fast immediately, due to serious health concerns—including possible seizures at any time. I am fortunate. The women, children, and men I am fasting for do not have that option.

When beginning this fast, 12 days ago, I said that when I could go no longer, I prayed another would take my place, and another, and another, until the expelled humanitarian agencies are readmitted and there is finally justice and peace for the people of Darfur. Hundreds people around the world have joined me in fasting, and I am humbled by the outpour of support for the cause and mission of this fast.

Richard Branson, when hearing of my health situation, immediately said, “Stop. I have started fasting.”

    Dear Mia,

    I send my deepest gratitude to you for your courage and leadership in this fast that has inspired so many. And I acknowledge you for honoring and taking care of your own needs so that you can continue to hold a light for the people of Darfur. Thank you for inspiring Richard Branson to join this important movement now. May this effort continue to grow in solidarity with the people of Darfur. And may those who hear of the fast and consider sacrificing even a single meal, may their hearts and minds help expand the collective conscience of the urgent need for action to end the crisis in Darfur.
