Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt, the first adoptive daughter of the international family of Angelina Jolie, has tended – for the most part – to keep out of the limelight since she was adopted in 2005.
Zahara Marley: Early life
To say the least, the conditions in relation to her maternal mother are complicated. If Zahara wants to communicate with her maternal mother, or not, is still up for consideration. Talking regarding the importance of financing schooling in less economically stable nations, she said, “[Zahara’s] mother died of Aids, so they would have had no money to take her to kindergarten.”
But an exclusive online Daily Mail reported to have met Zahara ‘s parent of birth, Mentewab Dawit Lebiso, in 2017. She told the British newspaper that Zahara had a place up for adoption. Because she had been born by incest. Lebiso added: “Angelina was more of a mother than I ever was to her. She’s been with her since she’s been a kid, but that doesn’t mean I don’t miss her.’
In a Bonjour! In a 2017 magazine interview with Jolie, the Maleficent actress said it was Zahara’s laugh sound that made her very happy. “She is one of those people who laugh all over her body. Fully open and full of pleasure,’ she stated.
In 2009 the Jolie-Pitt Foundation developed the Zahara Program to treat drug-resistant tuberculosis in Ethiopia, named after their daughter. To this day their work in the field continues, in cooperation with community health authorities. But Zahara isn’t the only Jolie-Pitt kid who has a charitable initiative named after him.
Located in Phnom Penh, the Maddox Chivan Children’s Center focuses on caring for children afflicted with or affected by HIV or Aids. In the outskirts of Addis Abeba, Ethiopia, there is also a Zahara Center which follows a similar model to the Maddox Centre, but with a further emphasis on tuberculosis. The house has also partially a design by Brad Pitt.
