Angelina Jolie Highlights Humanitarian Crisis

Angelina Jolie Highlights Humanitarian Crisis

UNHCR goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie listens to one elderly refugee’s story at the makeshift Al Waleed camp inside Iraq on Tuesday. This woman is just one of some 1,300 trapped unable to leave the country for neighboring Syria.

Angie has worked with UNHCR since early 2001. In May, a foundation set up by Angie and Brad Pitt, donated $1 million to help those affected by the conflict in Sudan’s Darfur region and neighboring Chad.

UPDATE 1: The Huffington Post reports Angie gain flew commercial with no staff, as she did with Darfur last year. She is stealth! (Head bodyguard Mickey Brett did tag along, though.)

UPDATE 2: OK! Magazine just updated their site with Angelina posting with Lance Corporal Samuel Petersen, 22, of the US Marine Corps.

    That’s our girl!

    “Our girl?” Kind of possessive, aren’t you? Are you a stalker? Do Brad and Angie have a restraining order against you?

  • jolierocks

    nicole: thanks for the news update.

  • tabloid nation

    Wha…Wha…What??? There’s a war in Iraq?? The people there are suffering??? HUH?? Oh, thank goodness Angelina is going to bring attention to it, cuz I had NO idea!!! WTF??? This woman thinks wayyyyy too much of herself!! And, to be perfectly honest, makes me NOT want to listen to anything she has to say. Seriously, I think that’s the effect she has on most people nowadays.

    Although I don’t like to see people wishing harm on her (like in death), but I do wish she would just crawl under a rock, STFU, let the kids go with assmunch, and not be seen or heard of again.

  • g

    U have to guive credit to AJ

    what she does is great
    wonderful UNHCR ambassador

  • PinkRose

    So, even though Angelina takes the kids when she is acting in safe locations, she obviously has left them home with Brad to continue enjoying their summer and out of danger. wonder which home they are at. Hopefully, New Orleans, where they seem to be more relaxed and free from the press.

  • http://JustJared Topaz

    Thankyou Angelina for shedding light on the hopeless and the helpless.
    Your fans are all so proud of you. Come back safely !

    KUDOS TO YOU 110%

  • Please!

    Angelina is back already

    Repost from last thread

    412 Please! : 08/28/2007 at 5:05 pm
    Please Angelna is just doing her thang like she always had done. Nothing new. Some of you need to stop elevating Angelina to something more than she is. She’s just a real person doing charitable work like many people we know. There have been many celebrities who have gone to Iraq so all of you 12 year olds need to stop with this.She’s not the only celebrity who is a UN Goodwill Ambassador. Audrey Hepburn was the BEST and never to be eclipsed.

    It’s a dam shame that some stupid “comedic” actress kept postponing having a baby because she was “busy’ with her stupid show. Meanwhile Angelina has managed to have a bio baby and adopted another son all the while filming and giving an amazing performance in AMH, going on a heavy press tour, traveling for the UNHCR twice including this trip, filming two new movies, attending red carpet events, laughing at tabloid reports and being Brad Pitt’s love. When you have a passion and desire in your life, you find away to multitask as best you can.

  • tammy

    no wonder brad fell madly in love with angie ,both of them are humanitarians, they are a very well matched couple.

  • xxxx

    Woman of substance !

    Some like to show their butt on their lazy routine hollyday, others prefer showing real suffering of real people in real desasterous scenes !

  • SISI

    My prayers are with you Angie , you are awesome !!!

    Good job girl , you are an example .

    I love the way that Brad and Angie support each other , they are great .

    Thanks Jared for all the coverage .

    IGNORE THE HATERS , THEY LOVE THE JOLIE-PITTS AS MUCH AS WE DO.

    Hola Tammy , Andrómeda , por donde andan ???

  • Go Angie

    That’s our Angie.

    Fans needs to re read Notes From My Travels.

  • JennyA

    Twatzilla strikes again.

    What a tiresome opportunist.

    I’ll bet she has neutered Brad.

  • mandi

    she’s great…more celebrities like her please…now if only the Palestinian refugees can get some attention to their ongoing troubles and tragedies that they have been facing for the last 50+ years!

  • guli

    Thanks Jared for the new thread….

    What an amazing woman!!! I love and admire her more everyday!

  • tabloid nation

    Yawn!!!!! Too little too late.

    Too bad Jolie didn’t speak out against the war and Bush. Then maybe there would fewer casualties and refugees.

    END THE WAR

  • JennyA
