Being a celebrity humanitarian is a great thing, but it can take it’s toll, take for example George Clooney is has been discovered recently contracted Malaria while on mission in Sudan.
For all you Clooney fans out there, he’s fine and has since been given a clean bill of health.
Clooney is a UN Ambassador and was visiting Africa in early January to work with the United Nations and Google towards setting up a satellite surveillance of the war torn nation which is on the brink of greater civil wars.
Piers Morgan tweeted about Clooney’s malaria this week:
“BREAKING NEWS: George Clooney has contracted malaria following recent trip to Sudan. Reveals news on @PiersTonight tomorrow 9PM ET.”
Clooney’s rep was quick to point out that the Malaria had been cured:
“George is completely over the Malaria he contracted while in the Sudan during the first week in January.”
George has now survived double malaria cases and continues to fight for the impoverished. Great actor, great director and great humanitarian, it’s easy to see why the ladies love him, although his looks probably don’t hurt either. Ever the humanitarian.
