Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie huge plans to build an AIDS clinic in Ethiopia have taken a massive step forward. Her charity has donated $2 million to the great project. The star adopted her daughter Zahara from the country in 2005 and plans to open the center for the youngster to run when she gets older. The unit received a very large donation from the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, a charity the actress set up with boyfriend Brad Pitt in 2006. The couple hope that the cash injection will help model the project on the successful Maddox Chivan Children’s Center in Cambodia, named after Jolie’s adopted son, Maddox. Jolie says in a statement, "Our goal is to transfer the success we have had in Cambodia to Ethiopia where people are needlessly dying of tuberculosis, a curable disease, and HIV/AIDS, a treatable disease." While Pitt adds, "The fact that poor people continue to die in our world today of TB, a curable disease, because of lack of access to drugs and care is unacceptable."
