Angelina Jolie is taking her humanitarian work to the next level by sponsoring an entire Cambodian family! RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the actress is picking up the tab for 13 siblings to receive a top education.
While filming First They Killed My Father in Siem Reap last year, the mother-of-six befriended 16-year-old student Leida Shoun and her 12 brothers and sisters.
The Shoun siblings, who are between the ages of 20 months and 23 years old, live in a shack with their parents in the poverty-stricken city. School expenses forced Leida to drop out two years ago.
"We cannot afford it," she told Jolie. "It is $5 per subject per month per child — too much for us. But I want to help other people, and be a good example for my family."
Jolie and her husband Brad Pitt gave Leida and all of her eligible siblings the education they deserve by paying for their classes at New York International School's Siem Reap branch.
"The Shouns are very good children," a school official said. "They have only just started, but they are doing very well."
