Devoted To Helping Refugees Around The World
Angelina Jolie devoted herself to helping refugees and returnees around the world. She visited over thirty different countries and became involved in more than two dozen charity and human rights organizations. Through her efforts, she strived to improve living conditions, eliminate extreme poverty, and provide essential services like health, education, and psycho-social support. When asked in an interview with UNHCR why Jolie was focusing so much of her time on working with refugees, the star had this to say, “-because I believe refugees are the most vulnerable people in the world. They are affected by everything, including landmines. They are vulnerable to everything.” Jolie has opened schools in multiple countries, provided invaluable developmental support, and raised awareness for an astonishing number of humanitarian issues worldwide.
