Brad Pitt is drawing plans to expand his building project in Louisiana to provide more roofs for the New Orleans residents affected by the 2005 Hurricane Katrina.
The disaster left the city devastated as thousands of homes were ruined while many people lost their lives.
In a bid to restructure the place, the actor and his charitable organisation 'Make It Right Foundation' had helped rebuild homes for the affected people.
And now the
Mr. and Mrs. Smith
star, who is on target to achieve his goal of building 100 homes by the end of 2009, wants to pile more roofs.
"It's exceeding my expectations. But it's really, it's hundreds, thousands of people that made it happen,"
quoted him as saying.
"One hundred and fifty (houses) is our goal. We'll have 100 by the end of the year. So next year, we'll have 150. But I'm hoping we can expand that, because the machine works," he added.
