Angelina Jolie Visits Syrian Refugee Camp in Jordan


Hollywood star Angelina Jolie strikes again as she visits the Azraq Refugee Camp in her fourth visit to Jordan on Friday. “Over half of all the refugees in Jordan are under 18. My own children are of that age, and like any other parent, it is impossible for me to imagine what it would be like for my own children in this situation, and it breaks my heart,” Jolie said.


Jolie headed to the 71st UN General Assembly session in a Jordan, a country that shelters about 600,000 Syrian refugees fleeing the ongoing civil war in their homeland. However, before the Assembly starts, she took the opportunity to pay the refugee camp a visit, on which she share her reflections to the press afterwards.


“As difficult as conditions are, refugees here count themselves among the lucky ones. Besides the millions trapped inside Syria whose lives are at risk daily, 75,000 Syrians are stranded in Berm – a no-man’s land on the Jordanian border – including children, pregnant women, and gravely ill patients,” she told the press.



WE SAID THIS: We need more Angelinas in this world.
