Owning a house in Italy, Angelina Jolie has reportedly donated cash to the flood victims in the country and offered to head fundraising appeals to help boost efforts to overcome the disaster.

Kind-hearted actress has pledged to help victims of severe flooding near her Italian home. The "Tomb Raider" star, who owns a house in Italy's north-east Veneto region with partner , has reportedly donated cash after the area suffered rising water levels following a spate of heavy rains.

Several residents have been forced to abandon their home, while others had to be rescued after becoming trapped by the floods. And Jolie has also offered to head fundraising appeals to help boost efforts to overcome the floods, reports Britain's The Daily Telegraph.

Angelina Jolie is well known for her philanthropic efforts beside acting in front of camera. She is one of the founding members of the Jolie/Pitt Foundation which makes donation to philanthropic projects and helps those in need.
