Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban's Haiti school

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are to help fund a school in earthquake-stricken Haiti, which will give children an education as well as providing them with basic medical needs

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are to fund a school in Haiti.

The Oscar-winning actress and the country singer - who have a 19-month-old daughter Sunday Rose - are keen to help the earthquake-stricken nation by giving money to an education facility.

Keith said: "We're actually going to be funding a school down there for the next five years."

As well as providing an education, the school will also help provide the children with basic medical needs.

Keith added to radio station CatCountry 96: "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."

The couple will be working with Oscar-winning director Paul Haggis and the Artists for Peace and Justice organisation on the project.

Nicole and Keith are not the first stars to help Haiti, which was hit by two devastating earthquakes last month.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Aniston and George Clooney have all donated vast sums of money, as have John Mayer and Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
