Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt plan children’s hospitalSeptember 16th, 2008 - 1:20 am ICT by IANS
New York, Sep 15 (IANS) Hollywood superstar couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have donated $2 million to set up a children’s hospital in Ethiopia. The clinic will target kids suffering from tuberculosis, HIV and AIDS, reports Hollywood.com.
The pair chose Ethiopia because it’s where their three-year-old adopted daughter Zahara was born.
“It is our hope that when Zahara is older she will take responsibility of the clinic and continue its mission. Our goal is to transfer the success we have had in Cambodia to Ethiopia where people are needlessly dying of tuberculosis, a curable disease, and HIV/AIDS, a treatable disease,” Jolie and Pitt said in a statement.
