Cindy McCain and Ben Affleck join forces to help Congo

Washington (CNN) - Hollywood celebrity Ben Affleck is bringing his star power to Capitol Hill Tuesday, and teaming up with an unlikely partner –Cindy McCain, wife of Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain– to bring attention to the humanitarian crisis in eastern Congo.

ABC News reports that Affleck and McCain will appear on Tuesday before the House Africa, Global Health and Human Rights Subcommittee at a panel held by Republican Congressman Chris Smith of New Jersey. Affleck said last week that he will speak alongside representatives from the State Department, USAID, and other human rights groups to "bring increased investment and attention from both the public and private sectors to the devastating humanitarian crisis in eastern Congo."
