The Examiner reports that Angelina Jolie spent Sunday in the Dominican Republic visitng the Darío Contreras Hospital (where many victims of the Port-au-Prince quake have been transferred) as part of a Goodwill Mission for the United Nations. The actress spent some time in the pediatric ward where many children, who survived the horrendous Haiti earthquake on January 12, 2010, were being treated.
According to hospital spokesman Darío Mañón in an official statement, “She [Angelina Jolie] spoke with several children and a Haitian woman who recognized her and requested help.” A Goodwill Ambassador for the UN, Jolie also met with the Dominican Republic’s President Leonel Fernández during a visit to the national palace in the island nation’s capital city. Today, Angelina Jolie arrived in Haiti as part of her mission to the devastated nation.
Again, as Goodwill Ambassador, Angelina Jolie toured a Doctors Without Borders hospital in the Delmas neighborhood of Port-au-Prince.
