Angelina Jolie paid a visit to Syrian refugees in Jordan, these are families who fled the 18-month-long war conflict of Syria.
Hoping her Hollywood presence alone would garner enough attention for the struggling people of Syria. The refugees are mostly moms who risk life and limb to get their children across the border.
“I was very moved today to meet again with the Syrian families. And to meet them here, not in a camp, but in homes where they are welcomed and protected,” the Oscar-winning actress told journalists in her visit in Beirut.
“The amount of innocent children that have been reported dead, the amount of innocent children I’ve met here who are wounded and unaccompanied — with their parents being killed and now they’re on their own — it’s impossible to imagine any mother standing by and not stepping up and doing something to prevent this,” the Hollywood mother of six said, urging other countries to act and help the Syrian people.
Angelina Jolie’s work as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador and Special Envoy takes her all over the world particularly at crisis areas where women and children need the utmost help. Well, looks like Ange is keeping her part in making the world a better place.
Angelina Jolie, you go girl!
