Angelina Jolie Celebrates UNHCR's 60th Anniversary

Angelina Jolie pays tribute to the staff of UNHCR, a refugee agency, on its 60th anniversary on Friday (December 17) in Madrid, Spain

“In the week of UNHCR’s anniversary, I would like to highlight the strength and courage of the world’s refugees and [other] forcibly displaced people who are, for all of us, an example of generosity and dignity,” Angelina said. “My thoughts go also to the dedicated UNHCR staff, who for many years have risked their lives to protect the lives of refugees.”

UNHCR was founded in 1950 to help Europeans displaced during World War II. It was only expected to last three years, but today, the agency works around the world, helps millions of people and has an open-ended mandate.
