Angelina Jolie Urges Support for Libya's Displaced

Angelina Jolie meets Somali refugees at Shousha Camp on Tuesday (April 5) in Ras Djir, Tunisia.

The 35-year-old actress and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador traveled a few kilometers from the Tunis-Libyan border to meet with some of the 440,000 people who have crossed the border to Tunisia to escape violence in Libya.

“The international community has done well to reinforce Tunisia’s remarkable relief effort. But with 2,000 people still crossing each day, we cannot let the funding dry up and need to sustain the momentum,” Angelina said, adding, “We would encourage others, individuals and governments, to continue to support and assist with the needs on the ground.”

“They’re waiting here with little hope, unable to return home and unsure of what’s to come. This constant cycle of displacement must finally come to an end,” Angelina concluded.

The Jolie-Pitt Foundation made a contribution to the efforts, covering the costs for 177 people to fly home to their countries of origin and to pay for an ambulance to help injured refugees arriving from Libya.

Love her. She is so gorgeous and practices what she preaches. She is glowing here.

Wonderful amazing Angie. Such a huge heart full of compassion, and so beautiful. God bless her and Brad and their children, and bring her home safely to their loving arms.

Jared, you spoil jp fans, so many new threads today. Thank you.

She is so beautiful in these moments when she doesn’t even try. Amazing.

Fake charity work doesn’t negate being a home wrecker

Bravo Angie! Always…


why would they get a 7th tattoo before the baby is born?

Brad always calls the papz. Angelina always hide from paparazzi. Brad have plastic surgery. Angelina still have wrinkles. Angie better than brad.

Why fans want Angie with Brad? He happy when Angie is dodging bullets? She can take pitt off her charity and just have jolie.
