Angelina JolieScreen star Angelina Jolie recently visited Haitian children being treated in the neighbouring Dominican Republic after the devastating earthquake in their homeland killed more than 200,000 people.

Oscar-winner Jolie toured the pediatric wing of Dario Contreras Hospital in Santo Domingo, a leading local trauma hospital, with its director Hector Quezada, the hospital said.

Jolie, who serves as a goodwill ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and UNICEF, was also joined by Gonzalo Vargas Llosa, a son of Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa.

The actress and her partner, actor Brad Pitt, donated a million dollars to Doctors without Borders in Haiti following the January 12 quake, the worst natural disaster on record in the Americas.
