Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie donate $340k to kids in Somalia

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have donated $340,000 to children in Somalia. The couple gave the money through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation to the Humanitarian Initiative Just Relief Aid, which helps care for mothers who have been displaced from the war-torn nation.

Mohamed Dahir from the organization said the money would allow for an expansion of the Badbaado camp in Mogadishu — the capital city of Somalia — which takes in around 300 women and children every day.
Around 29,000 children under the age of five are thought to have died due to drought and famine in the country, and the United Nations claims 750,000 people are at risk of starving to death in the next few months.
Angelina — who raises six children, Maddox, 10, Pax, seven, Zahara, six, Shiloh, five, and three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne with Moneyball star Brad — recently thanked Somali refugees for helping to inspire her and make her a better parent.
“I’m so grateful — I don’t want to cry — to the refugee families that I have the honour and privilege to spend the last years with,” she said.
“From them I’ve learned so much. I’ve learned to be a better person, a better mother. They’ve inspired me by showing me the unbreakable strength of the human spirit.”
