Angie & Brad Giving Back To Ethiopia!

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are giving back to Ethiopia, the country in which their 3-year-old daughter Zahara was born. The couple have donated $2 million to help fight HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis in the country, said the Global Health Committee, which announced the donation by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

The organization will use the money to build a centre in the capital city of Addis Ababa for children affected by the disease and establish a program to treat tuberculosis in children and adults. The centre will be named for Zahara.

The World Health Organization estimates that the African nation has 1.7 million people infected with HIV and 6,000 people infected with drug-resistant tuberculosis. "It is our hope when Zahara is older she will take responsibility of the clinic and continue its mission," Pitt, 44, said in a statement. Source
