On Wednesday Nicolas Cage donated $2 million to help former child soldiers. The donation was pledged by video during a United Nations conference in New York.

Cage says, “I understand that this pledge is not a solution for the problem. It’s my hopeful wish that today’s discussions on this tragic subject at the United Nations conference may bring us closer to eradicating the nightmare of child soldiers.”

The United Nations estimates that more than 300,000 children are involved in serious armed conflict.

Amnesty International is in charge of administering the funds, which will help provide shelters, medical and psychological rehabilitation services for the affected children.

Cage has worked with Amnesty International for more than two years.
