Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are giving back to the country where their 3-year-old daughter, Zahara, was born.

The couple has donated $2 million to help fight HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis in Ethiopia, said the Global Health Committee, which announced the donation by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

The organization will use the money to build a center in the capital city of Addis Ababa for children affected by the disease and to establish a program to treat tuberculosis in children and adults.
