We’ve now learned Brad and Angie have donated a total of $1 million through the Jolie-Pitt foundation. "It is incredibly horrible to see a catastrophe of this size hit a people who have been suffering from extreme poverty, violence and unrest for so many decades," says Jolie.
Adds Pitt: "We understand the first response is critical to serve the immediate needs of countless people who are now displaced from their homes, are suffering trauma, and most require urgent care."
The contribution went specifically to Doctors Without Borders, whose three medical facilities in Port-au-Prince were left in ruins after the 7.0 earthquake. Many of the staff are working on patients outside.
We’re hoping people will follow suit by contributing anything they can to the poor people of Haiti.
