Angelina Jolie takes daughter to Namibia to open wildlife sanctuary in Shiloh’s name

Angelina Jolie takes daughter to Namibia to open wildlife sanctuary in Shiloh’s name

Angelina Jolie’s kids have a lot of public duties, it is not so easy to be an offspring of the Hollywood star. This week, the Oscar-winning actress took Shiloh to Namibia where they opened a new sanctuary in pre-teen’s name.

Angelina’s first biological daughter Shiloh Nouvel was born on May 27, 2006 in Swakopmund, Namibia. This week, both mother and daughter jetted off to Africa earlier this month to officially open the Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary.

The Namibian sanctuary, which is the part of the local Naankuse Foundation, now names in honour of the 11-year-old girl who one day was born in Namibia. Shiloh’s parents, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, have established the charity foundation, which is managing its Namibian branch as well.

Big hearts: The new sanctuary is funded by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation; she and estranged husband Brad Pitt gave the foundation a $2 million grant in 2011

The new sanctuary named after Shiloh Nouvel is funded by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, according to the People magazine, the 11-year-old girl ‘face lit up when she saw the sanctuary for the first time.’

Angelina Jolie’s daughter is a part of family charity network

Angelina Jolie and her estranged husband Brad Pitt are known for their charity network, the Jolie-Pitt Foundation do a lot of good around the world, especially in Namibia. The new Shiloh Wildlife Sanctuary’s main purpose is to help and care for any rhinos or elephants that have been injured or orphaned in a poaching activity.

Thanks to the financial support of Ms Jolie, the sanctuary will have a full-time veterinarian as well as trucks, crates, vet equipment and holding pens. Such equipment makes the running foundation much easier, say the local employees.

Wildlife that is cared for at the facility will be nursed back to health before released to their place of origin. Other kids of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were also on hand at the wildlife sanctuary opening. In 2010, the part of Pitt-Jolie family was also presented in Namibia for charity purpose, see photo below.
