The much-in-news Hollywood couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, have undertaken to donate 2-million dollars to the Global Health Committee. The funds would be used to establish a children's clinic in Ethiopia to treat TB and HIV/AIDS.
The clinic shall be named after their eldest daughter, Zahara, 3, adopted from Ethiopia.
Like the Cambodian Health Committee's Maddox Chivan Children's Center in Cambodia, the Jolie-Pitt Foundation backed centre shall provide medical education and social services to the children.
The centre in Ethiopia would also concentrate on tuberculosis, a disease that accounts for nearly 2 million deaths in a year, and is the principal source of death in children and AIDS in adults, globally.
Pitt added: "The fact that poor people continue to die in our world today of TB, a curable disease, because of lack of access to drugs and care is unacceptable."
The Jolie-Pitt Foundation was established in September 2006, when the duo had supported the Global Action for Children organization and Doctors Without Borders by donating 1 million dollars to each.
