Brad Pitt has announced that his Make It Right Foundation has raised enough money to build 90 new homes in New Orleans.

The star only expected to raise enough to build 84 homes by this stage in the project, but due to unprecedented support from the public, there is enough to create 6 more houses in the Hurricane Katrina-ravaged area of the Lower Ninth Ward.

Pitt followed the announcement by visiting the area with his wife, Angelina Jolie, and children Maddox, 7, and Pax, 5, to view his housing project on Tuesday.

The actor hopes to raise enough cash to build 150 homes in the Lower Ninth Ward, with an emphasis on affordability and eco-awareness.
