Jolie-Pitt Donate $100,000 for Sudan Hospital
Hollywood's hottest couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt donated $100,000 of their money to help construct the first modern medical facility in Duk County, Sudan.

They made the donation to the Duk Lost Boys Clinic through the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, reports The clinic will open in the spring and serve more than 150,000 people.

The clinic was founded by John Dau, one of the "lost boys" of Sudan who is the director of non-profit group Direct Change's Sudan Project and whose story featured in the Pitt firm-produced documentary "God Grew Tired Of Us".

"Words cannot express my gratitude and the gratitude of the people of Duk County," said Dau, who fled to the city when he was a boy during Sudan's civil war in the late 1980s.

His statement added: "Jolie and Pitt demonstrate the American spirit of generosity. Hopefully, their donation will inspire others to join with us to rebuild southern Sudan."

Sudan has always been close to Jolie's heart. As a goodwill ambassador for the UN, the actress had recently met refugees from Sudan's war-torn Darfur region.
