Brangelina donates $1 million to Haiti relief

Money earmarked to Doctors Without Borders


 

The foundation run by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt is contributing US$1 million to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières, the emergency medical operation whose three hospitals in Port-au-Prince were severely damaged in the earthquake that has devastated the nation. “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,” Jolie said in a statement. Pitt elaborated on the rationale for the gift: “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.”
