Ethiopia

Angelina Jolie and partner Brad Pitt have donated USD 2 million to create a center for Ethiopian children affected by AIDS and tuberculosis. The Global Health Committee said the donation from the Jolie-Pitt Foundation would establish a center in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa to treat AIDS orphans and develop a program to treat drug-resistant tuberculosis. The Oscar-winning Jolie adopted a baby girl, now three years old, from Ethiopia in July 2005 and the new clinic will be named Zahara after her. (Reuters)
