New York, Aug 6 (IANS) Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie is planning to build an AIDS clinic in Ethiopia for her daughter Zahara to manage when she grows up. Jolie will make a trip to her adopted daughter’s native country to discuss building the clinic as part of the work of the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, a charity she set up with her husband Brad Pitt in 2006 for humanitarian aid around the world, reports Contactmusic.com.

“We will be building a Tuberculosis/AIDS clinic in Ethiopia. The one we plan for Zahara to take over when she is older,” Jolie told Britain’s Hello magazine.

Jolie also hopes to take son Maddox to his native place Cambodia as part of a separate charity trip that the family is planning once newborn twins Knox and Vivienne Marcheline grow up a little.

“The next trip for our foundation will most likely be Asia to follow up on the situation in Burma and our work in Cambodia. The boys have been asking to go there, so we will take them when Knox and Vivienne are a bit older,” she added.
