LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have donated $1 million for educational aid to children affected by the Iraq war, according to Reuters.
The Jolie-Pitt Foundation has given $500,000 to three groups in Iraq which will provide aid including basic necessities, supplies and books for about 5,700 children, and aid will also go to refugee kids and school rehabilitation programs.
The foundation also gave $500,000 to help children in the United States who have lost a parent in the war, or who are separated from a parent stationed in Iraq, said the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, on which Jolie serves as a co-chair.
Jolie is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), and Pitt has helped raise awareness for Darfur and was involved in a program to help build homes for survivors of Hurricane Katrina.
