This is the final installment of the AC360 Special, Angelina Jolie: Her Mission & Motherhood. Anderson completes his interview with Angelina Jolie and Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports on the medical crisis facing refugees. We hope you have enjoyed this special series this week.
Cambodia's history is one of violence, genocide, and war. It's taken its toll. Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in Asia. About half the children are malnourished, and one out of every eight kids dies before the age of 5. ...This is where Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's son, Maddox, was born. He was 7 months old when he was adopted. Too young to remember the poverty, too young to truly understand the impact he's had on his mother's life.
COOPER: Well, those countries are just a fraction of the more than 160 nations where 15 million displaced people come from. Many get by without even the most basic health care, a problem that's really getting worse by the day. Angelina Jolie says that stopping it can be simple. She came to the realization, she says, when she was about to give birth. ...Well, for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, the solution was that simple. After giving birth to Shiloh, she and Mr. Pitt donated $300,000 to two state-run hospitals in Namibia so they could buy those ultrasound machines and the kind of medical equipment that, well, frankly, most of us here take for granted. It is that kind of aid that saves lives.
But when disaster strikes, keeping refugees alive is often a race against time. No matter how fast the aid pours in. 360 M.D. Dr. Sanjay Gupta experienced it firsthand last year.
