Jolie-Pitt Foundation Opens Clinic in Zahara’s name

The Jolie-Pitt Foundation, which was formed by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in 2006, has made a $2 million donation to the Global Health Committee to establish a center to aid children affected by HIV/ADS and tuberculosis in Ethiopia.

The branch, to be named after their 3-year-old Ethiopian daughter Zahara Marley, will be modeled after the Maddox Chivan Children’s Center in Cambodia. The center in Cambodia provides medical, education and social servies to impoverished Cambodian children.

“It is our hope when Zahara is older she will take responsibility of the clinic and continue its mission,” Pitt said in a statement.

“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 said in a statement.

    They are doing an amazing job, and it’s a gesture of solidarity with the Third World, that not all the people do, specially celebrities who win a lot of money…
    Brad and Angelina are really comprensive with the poor children, and they are just… the best couple of Hollywood, and maybe of the world.
    They love their children and they want to live in a better world,they are really great.
    I just hope that this family be happy forever, ’cause a lot of families are happier with all their donations.
    best wishes
