Angelina Jolie

keeps a special connection with the countries in which were born his children. That’s why, this year decided to get the 2020 in

Ethiopia

, the birthplace of Zahara, the largest of the girls of the family.

The movie star and activist

met with the first female president of that african country, Sahle-Work Zewde, who spoke of some social problems such as education, the distribution of female elements so that the girls did not stop going to school when they have their period, and the history and culture of the place.

They also talked about the efforts of Jolie to seek a drug-resistant tuberculosis, a disease that affects the local population. At the meeting were present

Zahara

and

John

, who traveled to Africa with his mother, and his brothers, the twins

Knox

and

Vivienne

.

In 2009, Jolie founded a program called Zahara, like her daughter, in which the Foundation Jolie Pitt joined the Global Foundation of Health and the Ministry of Health of Ethiopia to find an initiative that allows for the treatment of tuberculosis.

This is not the only cause for which Jolie is working day-to-day. In Cambodia, the native country of their eldest son Maddox, she founded the Center for Children Maddox Learn, while, in Namibia, a country in which he was born

Shiloh -today named John-

, does the Sanctuary Wild Shiloh, who cares for elephants and rhinos who have been victims of abuse and poaching.

As has counted Angelina, their children support this type of work, in fact, no one wants to follow in the footsteps of her and Brad Pitt, his father. “My children don’t want to be actors, they are more interested in business, in humanitarian issues, and things like that”, she told People magazine in the month of October.
