Do-gooder couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have donated more money to charity. The couple has generously given $2 million of their fortune to the Global Health Committee through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation. The donation will be used to open a clinic in Ethiopia that will treat children suffering from diseases such as tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS.
The center will be modeled after a similar facility in Cambodia, which is run by the couple's foundation in that country, too. The children in the clinic will receive medical and social services, as well as education. In a statement released to People Magazine, Jolie said, "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."
