Natalie Portman is working with the Foundation for International Community Assistance (FINCA) on their Lend A Hand campaign.

The pregnant Oscar winner - who is expecting her first child with fiance Benjamin Millepied this summer - has joined forces with actress Zoe Saldana to launch a new video public service announcement campaign for the organisation's global effort to support women who are working to create a better future for their families.

Natalie said: "I'm so proud to serve with FINCA in helping impoverished women become self-sustaining."

Zoe added: "There are so many women in the world who are less fortunate, and struggling to provide for their families."

Natalie - who has been working with the company for over a decade - is the organisation's Ambassador of Hope and is encouraging people to donate to the Lend A Hand campaign which will allow FINCA to provide small loans to those in need, especially women.
