Angelina Jolie has met with the president of the Dominican Republic to discuss the country's aid efforts to help the people of the nation's earthquake-ravaged neighbour Haiti.
The Hollywood actress flew to Santo Domingo earlier this week (begs08Feb10) to visit patients at Dario Contrera Hospital, where dozens of survivors of the 12 January (10) disaster are receiving medical treatment.
Jolie, a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations, turned her charity trip into a power meeting when she sat down for talks with President Leonel Fernandez on Monday evening (08Feb10).
The pair discussed the work officials from the Dominican Republic are currently doing to help the relief efforts in neighbouring Haiti, while Fernandez also took the opportunity to praise the actress for her tireless humanitarian work.
Jolie made her way to Haiti on Tuesday (09Feb10) so she could witness first-hand the devastation caused by the 7.0-magnitude tremors, which plunged the nation into chaos.
The superstar and her partner Brad Pitt are among a host of generous celebrities who have all given huge cash sums to aid those affected by the Haiti earthquake. The couple donated $1 million (GBP625,000) to the relief effort from its charity foundation.
