The donation was made through the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, and will help create Duk County’s first modern medical facility.
The plan to build the medical centre was conceived by Sudanese “Lost Boy” John Dau, who was featured in the documentary “God Grew Tired of Us”, which was produced by Pitt. Dau shared the plan with Pitt and Jolie at the film’s première in January.
As director of Direct Change's Sudan Project, Dau said, "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.
“Hopefully, their donation will inspire others to join with us to rebuild southern Sudan.”
