Matt Damon is speaking out about a good cause — one that he, in fact, helped create. The father of four girls — he shares daughters Stella Zavala, 6, Gia Zavala, 8½, and Isabella, 10, with wife Luciana, as well as Luciana’s daughter Alexia — chatted with PEOPLE at “The Water Clouds by Stella Artois” Art Installation in N.Y.C. Wednesday about how his family impacts his investment in the clean-water initiative.
“When you’re out there seeing it — these are kids who are the same age as my kids, and its impossible not to think about your own children in a situation like that,” Damon said at the event, which took place on World Water Day in conjunction with Water.org. “And then you think about the number of kids who are dying,” continues Damon, who was interviewed alongside his Water.org co-founder Gary White. “Every 90 seconds, a child under the age of 5 dies because of lack of access to clean water and sanitation. These are things that we solved in the West a hundred years ago.” Want all the latest pregnancy and birth announcements, plus celebrity mom blogs? Click here to get […]
