Angelina Jolie's Cambodia charity headquarters are just shacks with no running ...

Angelina Jolie's supposedly palatial home in Cambodia has no running water, electricity for only four hours a day and is made up of just a few shacks in a field, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.

It's always been thought the 44-year-old had a paradise rural retreat, but her compound is just a line of 'thatched buildings'.

It's situated in the remote area of Samlaut, in the Battambang province, and also acts as the field headquarters for the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation (MJP), her international non-profit charity.

According to a handbook distributed to visiting health specialists who are assigned to MJP, conditions at the compound are Spartan at best. 

Staff are provided meals of white rice and little else every day and are banned from having sex.

But while volunteers have to stay at the compound, Jolie prefers to stay elsewhere, flying to a different destination at nights via a helicopter.

'This is a secure compound containing small thatched buildings providing accommodation for rangers, ground staff, educationalist and visitors. There are often interesting people around and it can be a hive of activity. Therefore space is often at a premium and you may need to share a bedroom,' the handbook given to visiting volunteers states

The charity's compound hosts visiting workers from the United Kingdon's National Health Service (NHS).

Since 2008, the Thames Valley and Wessex NHS Leadership Academy, based in Hampshire, has been sending two health specialists for six-month placements every year to work with MJP.

But the compound where the volunteers stay is not quite what's expected when owned by a star, who is reportedly worth $300 million.
