Pitt-Jolie Give $2 Mil for Ethiopia

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s foundation has given $2 million to provide medicines for Ethiopians suffering from HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis.

The money from the Pitt-Jolie Foundation will be used to create a center for AIDS and TB-afflicted children in the capital of Addis Abada, and to establish a program to treat drug-resistant TB  in children and adults. The donation was made to the Global Health Committee.

“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.

The children’s center will be modeled after one in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, which is also supported by the foundation.

The clinic in Addis will be named after the couple’s Ethiopian adopted daughter, Zahara.

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