Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie donate to Somali aid efforts

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have donated $327,000 to help displaced mothers and children in war-torn Somalia.

The charitable couple handed over the money through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation to help the Humanitarian Initiative Just Relief Aid, which works to help residents of the Badbaado camp near Mogadishu, an area currently gripped by its worst famine in 60 years.

Mohamed Dahir, of the Humanitarian Initiative Just Relief Aid organisation, has praised the stars for their generous donation and insisted the money will help save many lives, according to the Press Association.
