Washington, Dec 3 (ANI): Hollywood actor Brad Pitt has expressed his happiness on seeing people affected by Hurricane Katrina move into the homes he built in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The 2005 hurricane left the city devastated as thousands of homes were ruined and many people lost their lives.

In a bid to restructure the place, the Mr. and Mrs. Smith actor had put forward his support and helped rebuilt homes for the affected people.

Pitt and his charitable organization Make It Right Foundation have constructed 6 houses for people, who were rendered homeless by the hurricane, and is building two more properties with another 14 lined up to be built in 2009.

“I”m really happy for the families that are going to be here, but I can”t help but think about the families that aren”t. It’’s a push-pull for me. The excitement is that it’’s being proven, that it’’s working. The frustration is that we have a long way to go, Contactmusic quoted Pitt, as saying.

“You”re going to see 100 homes here, mark my words. It’’s nice to see a few, but I”m anxious to see 100, 150, 1,000. It’’s amazing. This place that suffered such injustice and so much death can become one of the primary examples of a high-performance neighborhood. It really is amazing, Pitt added. (ANI)
