After the massive tremor in Haiti which has left hundreds of people dead and homeless, the Hollywood super-couple are encouraged to support the humanitarian efforts on the island and help the victims.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have stepped in to help victims of the Haiti earthquake, which has left hundreds of people dead and many more homeless. The poverty-stricken Caribbean island was hit hard by a massive tremor on Tuesday, January 12, which struck just south of the capital city, Port-au-Prince.

Former The Fugees star Wyclef Jean has urged the public to donate money to help the rescue efforts in his native country, and now the Hollywood super-couple has come forward to aid the campaign.

A statement from Pitt and Jolie, released to JustJared.com, reads, "We are devastated by the news from Haiti. We will work closely with our good friend Wyclef Jean to support the humanitarian efforts on the island and help those who have been injured and left without homes and shelter." Jean adds, "I cannot stress enough what a human disaster this is, and idle hands will only make this tragedy worse. The over 2 million people in Port-au-Prince face catastrophe alone. We must act now."

Meanwhile, hip-hop star P. Diddy is also pleading for help to raise funds for those affected. Taking to his Twitter.com page, he writes, "God Bless Haiti!!!! God please!!! STATE OF EMERGENCY!!!" He then requested fans donate cash to Jean's Yele Haiti charity organization.
