Angelina Jolie is leading donations for the flood relief effort in Pakistan – the superstar has handed over $100,000 of her own money to help those worst affected.

The actress, who is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations, called for her fans to help raise funds for the Pakistani people whose lives have been devastated by the floods which hit the country last month.

And as the death toll reaches more than 2,000 and fears increase about the spread of water-borne diseases, Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt have donated part of their fortune to help boost aid for the country, according to news agency AFP.

The Tomb Raider star frequently gives away money to help others – she donated $1 million to Doctors Without Borders to help earthquake survivors in Haiti earlier this year, as well as handing over $75,000 to build a girls school in Afghanistan.
