Washington, Apr 29 (ANI): American actress Mia Farrow is set to share her hunger strike experience with her fans every day of the three-week fast online through her blog.

Farrow, 64, will be living off nothing but water for 21 days, in a bid to raise awareness of the plight of those starving and suffering in war-ravaged Darfur in Sudan.

Doctors have warned the actress that she could cause irreversible damage to her body by fasting, but she has paid no heed to them and started her fast on April 27.

She is adamant she will continue for as long as she can, and she will write daily updates on the Internet so fans can monitor her progress.

“I would ask people (to) go to my website, MiaFarrow.org. I’ll be blogging every day that I can,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

And the actress is hopeful her stand will encourage others to do the same for the people of Darfur.

“If anyone wants to join me in a fast, you’re welcome to it, even for one day, to show solidarity with Darfur’s people, and express our own outrage at a world that has allowed this to happen,” she added. (ANI)
