Angelina Jolie deserves a sainthood, according to the children she helped by donating the profits from her family photos of baby Shiloh in 2006.

The actress agreed to distribute the $4 million she made from showing off Shiloh, who was born in Namibia, to local schools - and the kids she helped back then are now flourishing thanks to the hand-out.Children attending the Okanimekwa School, which received an estimated $10,000 of the photo cash, can't thank the actress and human rights activist enough - because her donation helped to buy them bicycles.In a new Life & Style magazine expose, teenager Emiliana Shikongo says, She's (Jolie) a very special person, and we'll never forget her. She must be a holy person.And schoolpal Andreas Kristofelius adds, I think Angelina Jolie must be a saint.The school bought 75 bicycles to help struggling pupils, and Shikongo was among those to reap the benefits of the gift.She tells the publication her new mode of transport has shaved 90 minutes off her journey to school - and no longer means she has to leave at 5am and return after dark.She says, Now I can stay at school until 4 or 5pm to finish my homework and I still get home before dark. Now my teachers and parents are happy with my performance.Kristofelius, 17, adds, I used to stay late at school, then walk home to collect firewood to make light so I could finish my homework (because) there is no electricity... Now, with the bicycle, I get to school early, and I'm already working when my teacher arrives. And I can stay later and finish all my homework because it doesn't take me long to ride home.
