Angelina Jolie has revealed plans to build an AIDS clinic in Ethiopia.

The actress – currently busy looking after her newborn twins – has said that she will travel to her adopted daughter’s native country to discuss building the clinic as part of the work of the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

“We will be building a TB/AIDS clinic in Ethiopia,” she has been reported to have told Britain’s Hello magazine. “One we plan for Zahara to take over when she is older.”

Zahara was born in Ethipoia, and adopted by Jolie and partner Brad Pitt in 2005.

Jolie also revealed that she plans to visit Cambodia – where her adopted son Maddox was born – when the newborn twins are a little older.

“The next trip for our foundation will most likely to be Asia to follow up on the situation in Burma and our work in Cambodia,” she said. “The boys have been asking to go so we will take them when Knox and Viv are a little bit older.”

Jolie and Pitt founded the Jolie-Pitt Foundation in 2006 to assist with humanitarian crises around the world. In June, the couple donated $1 million to support the education of war-affected children through the foundation.
