Hollywood star Angelina Jolie is joining the fight against the coronavirus pandemic by donating one million dollars to combat child hunger as the virus continues to threaten the world.


Angelina Jolie is regarded as a philanthropist by many people, and over the years, has used her fame and wealth to the benefit of those who are in need.

With the world currently battling with the coronavirus pandemic and its effect, the "Maleficent" actress again showed just how benevolent she is by making a huge donation to help cater for the needs of hungry children.

The actress donated the sum of a million dollars to the "No Kid Hungry Organization," whose aim is to reduce the number of hungry children in the world, and her donation will ease the plight of the needy during the pandemic. 

In a statement obtained by E! News, Angelina Jolie said that so many children are out of school all over the world because so many schools have closed following the coronavirus outbreak. She also said

"Many children depend on the care and nutrition they receive during school hours, including nearly 22 million children in America who rely on food support."

She added that the organization would continue in its effort to get to as many of those children as possible, who were lacking food. "No Kid Hungry Organization" is headed by "Share Our Strength."

The latter was founded by Billy Shore, who is also its executive chairman. Speaking to E! News, Shore said that apart from Angelina Jolie, a lot of people have also risen to the challenge of feeding hungry children in these tough times.

Meanwhile, the actress made some startling revelations about her children earlier in the month. In an essay she wrote in "Time" to mark International Women's Day, the 44-year-old said that two of her daughters recently dealt with medical challenges. 

The mother of six said she spent the two previous months in and out of surgeries with her eldest daughter, Zahara, while another of her younger daughters, who she didn't mention, also had hip surgery.

Angelina Jolie was previously in a relationship with Hollywood star, Brad Pitt, who she divorced in 2016, after tying the knots in 2014.
