Angelina Jolie Washington, Jan 23 (ANI): Actress/United Nations Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie has revealed that the needs of the children orphaned by the Haiti earthquake are almost “almost incalculable”.

Jolie, 34, who supports the SOS Children’s Villages, spoke about how the organisation has been raising more than 300 orphaned or abandoned children and cared for 4000-plus poverty-stricken kids and families in Haiti.

“That was before the earthquake,” Us magazine quoted her as saying.

“Now the needs for orphaned children are almost incalculable,” she stressed.

The organization has been working non-stop in Haiti to find shelter, food, medicine, trauma counselling and more for children and families.

“As a long time supporter of SOS, I have visited many of these unique villages personally. I can vouch for their commitment and care for the children,” Jolie said.

“As the Haiti situation unfolds, and we all focus in on ways to help these desperate children — I ask you to please learn more about and consider supporting SOS Children’s Villages,” she added. (ANI)
