Brad Pitt
and Angelina Jolie have donated $100,000 to help build the first modern medical facility in Duk County, Sudan. The Duk Lost Boys Clinic will be run by Sudanese philanthropist John Dau, who is featured in the documentary God Grew Tired Of Us, which Pitt produced. The Hollywood couple agreed to help Dau fund the clinic after hearing of his plans for the project at the Hollywood premiere of his film in January, according to People magazine. The clinic will open later this spring and serve more than 150,000 people. It is located in the village Dau fled from as a boy during Sudan's civil war in the late 1980s. In a statement, Dau says, "Words cannot express my gratitude and the gratitude of the people of Duk County. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt demonstrate the American spirit of generosity." Jolie, a goodwill ambassador for the United Nation's refugee agency, recently travelled to Chad, where she met with refugees from Sudan's war-torn Darfur region.
