Hollywood character, Matt Damon was moved as he listened to a pregnant Zimbabwean woman describe how she was raped and the hardships she faced crossing into South Africa.

The Hollywood actor visited refugee centers in Musina on the South African border with Zimbabwe as part of his work with the human rights organization he started with a number of other celebrities, the Associated Press reported.

The economic collapse and the dire living conditions in Zimbabwe also recently plagued by Cholera has caused many Zimbabweans to leave in search of better survival conditions.

In an exclusive interview with the AP, Damon said that he was “shocked and saddened” by the plight of the people he had spoken to.

He has also called for action to be taken by both international as well as regional leaders.
