Nicolas Cage Establishes Fund for Former Child Soldiers

"Oscar-winning actor Nicolas Cage has donated two million dollars to establish a fund for former child soldiers, Amnesty International announced. The money will be used for rehabilitation shelters, medical services and psychological and reintegration services for children forced to take part in armed conflicts world-wide, the human rights monitor said. "Nicolas has worked tirelessly to raise awareness about the horrors faced by child soldiers and other human rights tragedies," Amnesty USA's executive director Larry Cox. "We commend his efforts and appreciate his generosity."" AFP, Yahoo News Link to Article (last visited 6-18-06 NVS)
