Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie
Hollywood actress and longtime humanitarian, Angelina Jolie, has donated one million dollars to fight child hunger amid the coronavirus spread.

The Maleficent star pledged the sum to ‘No Kid Hungry’ organisation, which will provide meals for children from low-income families across the US, where many schools have closed due to the pandemic.

Jolie said: “As of this week, over a billion children are out of school worldwide because of closures linked to coronavirus.

“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.

“No Kid Hungry is making resolute efforts to reach as many of those children as possible.”

No Kid Hungry revealed it had already given $2 million (£1.68) to 78 organisations in 30 states to help feed vulnerable children.

Oscar-winner Jolie, 44, is not the only celebrity to help with the relief effort amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
