Hollywood power couple (I’m being generous…) Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman are teaming up with Oscar-winning director Paul Haggis and the Artists for Peace and Justice organization to provide financial backing for a school opening in the earthquake-ravaged nation of Haiti.
In addition to education, the school will also reportedly provide basic health needs to the children, country-interest websiteTheBoot.com dished this week.
“We’re actually going to be funding a school down there for the next five years,” Keith told radio station CatCountry 96 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania this week. “It’s in Port-Au-Prince. The kids will also have one hot meal a day. They’ll have all of their medical taken care of by the school, and clothing, as well.”
Keith and Nicole were among the celebs who participated in the multi-network “Hope For Haiti Now” telethon last month. No word on when the new school will open its doors.
