The Maddox Chivan Children's Center Provides Relief to Children Impacted by HIV
Two superstars -- one a world-famous actress and one a world-renowned scientist -- have teamed up to bring aid to vulnerable children around the world.
Oscar winner Angelina Jolie and Harvard researcher Dr. Anne Goldfeld, who co-directs the Global Health Committee, turned a chance meeting into an opportunity to help Cambodian children stricken with HIV and tuberculosis live full, healthy lives.
The two women met while flying into Cambodia in 2004, where Jolie was filming the hit "Tomb Raider" sequel and Goldfeld was returning to provide medical aid to children in need. The conversation the two struck up led to Jolie lending her support and funding for a center to bolster Goldfeld's efforts.
"There, sitting next to me, was Angelina Jolie," Goldfeld said of that fateful flight. "I think I was so jet-lagged that I had the temerity to say, 'You're Angelina Jolie, aren't you?'"
