Angelina Jolie Visits Somali Refugees in Kenya

Angelina Jolie Visits Somali Refugees in Kenya

Angelina Jolie (wearing cap) stops to listen to a Somali refugee speak in the Dadaab refugee camp on the Kenya-Somali border on Saturday (September 12) in East Africa.

The 34-year-old Goodwill Ambassador for the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Agency) undertook a day-long visit to the camp to highlight the forgotten plight of the refugees from Somalia and to appeal for solutions for the overcrowding.

Angie has worked with UNHCR since early 2001.

    Halo Says:

    Oh my. Angie cares too much about others and not enough about herself. She needs Food. It’s wonderful to see a big star do stuff like this though and be so committed. but she should take btter care of herself first.

    Thanks jared.. now this is something to blog about. enough of Megan and that drama.

    She must be home by now or on her way. They release pics when she is done. So glad she is keeping her UNHCR work front and center.. even when she is on down time with the family.. I hope she goes to Spain with Brad on Friday. If not we still have Brad.. Lovely that they are at home enjoying this time. Sad that even though they are out of the media the tabs can’t let them go.. Such an amazing woman. and an amazing couple.

    The Jolie-Pitts rule.. kick major as*s and are the most obsessed over couple in the history of Hollywood.. 5 years and counting..

    OK I’m sure the haters are getting the smoke signal that there is a new thread and will be here soon..

    Love Angie so..

    Yawn saint Angie is at it again. I mean it’s great she helps and all but doesn’t she have kids at home who would like their mother around. With all the press and work she does you would think she’s want to hangout with her family. And no I’m not a Jennifer Aniston fan, can’t

    Its so sad that Somali people are being victims of a government that cannot handle a growing Islamist insurgency of radical terrorists being funded by Arab countries to kill as many black people that they can find. Sudan and Somalia are just the beginning.

    she is doing what she loves beside raising her family. Kudos for her, and yes, it is great to see a big star do stuff like this though and be so committed, most just worry about the next party, the next line in her face and her next tanning session.

    Jamie Says:

    Is Angelina sick? She looks very gaunt and pale. I hope she is taking care of herself. Sometimes when you have so much love to give, you forget about you. Please, I hope Angelina is okay and not sick.

    How is she so thin but so energetic. I don’t eat for a few days and I get exhausted. There must be some sort of trick to it. Vitamin B shots perhaps?

    Thanks for the thread about AJ humanitarian trip to Kenya. “Taken time ” away from her family to help others and shine a light on the plight of many refugees, who have been away from their “homes and families” for years is a good thing. Refugees who are living in war torn countries, extreme poverty and despair. Through her example, her children and others willing to listen, will learn about helping others and being of service. It is not all Malibu, tanning and hair. AJ has been a UN Ambassador since 2001 and take her UN duties seriously.

    there she goes again. i suppose we should now ask the pope in rome to declare her a living saint. but wait, cannot do that. impossible. can’t have someone who violated one of the top 10, thou shalt not committ adultery, as a saint. wouldnot go over very well.

    Thanks to FF photoshopper !

    Should be interesting to see how much she pictures herself instead getting attention to the displaced people:

    judgmental? Says:

    I don’t understand those out there that are sooooo judgmental of her work.
    She has celebrity status, so when she does these things they make news. That’s part of why she chooses to do so. Also, reaching out to other countries is good PR for the U.S.

    Finally someone is drawing attention to the plight of Somali refugees again. One thing I have to say, this woman is truly courageous…I heard about conditions and dangers in refugee camps and even though she has security, there is no guarantee that her and the people around her will not be attacked.

    I applaud Angie, she doesn’t have to do any of this, and she is really engaged in pushing human rights and putting attention on the plight of refugees. I think she is one of the few celebrities (like Mia Farrow and Audrey Hepburn) who really take their human rights committments seriously.

    She is a a TRUE SAINT…Mother Audrey Hepburn.

    All I can do is shake my head at some of you rabid hens and your conspiracy theories. Geez, I guess ass and crotch shows in Mexico, showing your naked parts, suing Paps for taking naked pixs and smoking weed and having an on-set photographer for your lame walk abouts require a congressional medal. Whatever troll.
