Brad & Angelina Open HIV/AIDS Clinic in Ethiopia

Brad & Angelina Open HIV/AIDS Clinic in Ethiopia

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are continuing to help kids around the world, helping those who have been affected by tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS

The Jolie-Pitt Foundation just donated $2 million to the Global Health Committee to plant a help center in Ethiopia, which will be named after their daughter Zahara (she was adopted from Ethiopia).

The center will be modeled after Maddox Chivan Children’s Center in Cambodia (named after their oldest son), where children receive medical, education and social services.

“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 to People.

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

Wonderful to see goodwill being done in this world.

good people

Wouldn’t it be nice if some celebrites actually used their fortunes help out people in their OWN country… No offense to Africa, or any other country.. but god damn, lets help our OWN cause in america , just a little.

# 4

They make people not to feel enough good about themselves with all these great jobs they are doing. God bless your heart. So nice of them toward Zee,she will be a great humanitarian just like her parents.

# 5

That’s fantastic!

# 6

Maybe Z will turn out to be a spoilt brat and not give a toss about Africa.
She may want to turn her back on that type of thing……….just because she was born there doesn’t mean she might want to help out

# 7

@lynda — at least they’re giving it the old college try. They can’t force Zahara to do anything, just raise her with good humanitarian values and hope that she gives back to the world as they’ve tried to do.

JEEEEEZ we get it! OKEY you guys are nice people and like to help out, But don’t push it … Instead of creating a new one’s why can’t they just donate to those who already exist?? Its becomme a bit cheasy now…

hey dumba** They are giving you space. They are doing it in less fortunate countries,so you will learn to do something for your own country. oh what a dumb comment. Brad Pitt did a great job in NOLA and gave 5 million to charity there,and it was from their charity foundation. Angelina is donating to bunch of cancer’s centers in U.S and they are building school in NOLA. Did you even check your fact before posting your comment? You can’t handle them helping people in Africa while your/my country is responsible for all these sh*ts going on in Africa. Go and donate to one charity cause at least in your own country,the one that needs all.

Awww…that is great news. Not so long ago, Zahara was malnourished and about to die. Brad and Angelina adopted her and saved her life. Then now, this. I am happy that Brad and Angelina are doing this for Zahara. As she grows, she will start to ask question about Ethiopia. This is a perfect way for her to reconnect with her birth place, get a sense of home/connection to the Motherland and feel proud to be an African girl. As the project grows, she will see the difference it is making to her people and BE PROUD for contributing something to her NATIVE COUNTRY. I like the fact that Brad and Angelina are doing this while Zahara is still young. It sure will help when she get into the phase where most adopted kids are dealing with identity issues.

How lucky is Zahara to have such loving parents!!

thanks jared

Angie and Brad both have good heart. God Bless them.

Angie and Brad can do whatever the hell they want with their money and they can help whatever country they want.

Zahara and her brothers and sisters are being raised with good values and the kids will continue to do the greatness that their parents are doing around the world.

Hola! Bonjour!…Hi haterz!…the champ is here…

…good for jolie-pitts and great for ethiopia…et merci beaucoup wyclef et matt damon…tres bien!

Thanks for the news and information about the Jolie-Pitt Foundation to help build an Aids/TB clinic in Ethiopia. Children deserve help and medicine for curable diseases no matter what country they are in. It is nice that the Jolie-Pitts are building Children’s Centers in the birthplace of their own children. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have also donated to various organizations in America as well as international.

they are amazing ppl. ppl can talk all the trash they want about them but at the end of the day, i have sooo much respect and admiration for them!

That is awesome!
Brad says he “hopes” Zahara wants to run the clinic when she comes of age. I think that is great too because it means they are giving her a choice, not trying to run her life for her.

Lynda! Do you know the meaning of hope? It means,she is not force to do it but it will be great if she will be able to do it. They are not going to stop their support for this center if Zee says she doesn’t like this center. :roll:

Why there are so many dumb questions in this thread?

WOW….what a fabulous couple. They staretd JP Foundation in ’06.

What rich famous celebs give to the needy in US & 3rd World countries.???????
Bill Gates & his wife.

Brad & Angie are walking the talk. They set up the Cilin for Zahara to one day to get invloved. mmad has one already.
