Brad Pitt Visits Katrina Affected New Orleans
Brad Pitt visited the affected New Orleans areas to mark the fifth anniversary of hurricane Katrina; partner Angelina Jolie couldn’t accompany him to the place.
Pitt in his experience recalls what he saw when he had visited the place after it was hit by the hurricane.
He recalls, “It was unfathomable. I mean, just -- you had no idea that there were families. It was just wiped clean. Except for the occasional pile up of homes and -- on top of homes.”
Pitt also says that back in the year 2007, he felt that he it became obligatory for him to raise help. He even launched a project called ‘Make It Right’, in the project 34 eco-friendly homes were built and the number has been raised till 150.
He adds further, “I mean, people build their lives here. And -- and -- I mean, New Orleans is a unique place to begin with. And I say -- a cultural treasure trove for -- for America to begin with.”
“But the thing that struck me was that these people were trying to -- you know, these people were trying to get home. And -- and were having a very difficult time doing so.”
Other celebrities like faith Hill also performed a free concert to help raise money to rebuild more houses. The contribution of the Hollywood celebrities towards re-establishing the place has been phenomenal.
