Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who was recently recognized for her work as a U.N. Goodwill Ambassador, have donated $340,000 to the Humanitarian Initiative Just Relief Aid, which goes toward healthcare for homeless children in war-torn Somalia.

The country is experiencing its worst famine in sixty years; it has taken the lives of 29,000 children under the age of five.

On October 3, Ms. Jolie honored a Yemeni aid group and the U.N. Refugee Agency Awards in Switzerland, where she spoke about her ten years of experience with the refugees.
