Switzerland: Matt Damon accepts Crystal Award for his work with water.org

Actor and philanthropist Matt Damon was presented with Crystal award on Tuesday at the opening of the 2014 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. His organisation water.org (which he co-founded with Gary White) aims to provide aid to regions of developing countries that do not have access to safe drinking water and sanitation.

After jesting about never winning an acting gong at the Golden Globes, he reiterated his company’s mission statement “We need you on board because access to water - fundamental as that is, is a not an end in itself- access to water is access to education, access to work, access above all to the kind of future we want for our own families and all the members of our human family, thank you again!"
