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.

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

  • Nay

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

  • Nay

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

  • angel aka lurker

    pitussa and company have some class stop spamming the thread take a break from your miserable lives

  • My 2 cents

    Her face looks fuller, she gains weight and 7th coordinate => she is pregnant.

  • villedeville

    Angelina and Brad are very happy together with their children and family. No wonder the haters are having verbal and rectal diarrhea.

  • AJJA

    Angelina, my hero. Is there anything that can be done to help this poor Libyan woman? >>> http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/video/world/2011/04/05/ac.woman.talks.pt1.cnn.html

    What a GOD forsaken place. Please take care. You are in my prayers.

  • Mangelina

    Fake ho

  • Nay

    Angelina talking to refugee, brad drinking wine and party. Angelina is better. And brad face is tight like ruber band wound around wrist.

  • Reality Bites

    Any guesses on who her new tattoo’d coordinates are for? There is a ne line under the darker twins lines. 7 now in all. Is a new baby already adopted? A miscarriage? Or is it Brad’s? Can anyone get a shot close enough to read the coordinates?

  • LOL

    Shame the baby is not Brad’s

  • Nay

    Angelina pregnant in bullet place, and brad happy has a donkey running with shrek.

  • She does

    @My 2 cents: Angie looks a wee bit fuller – beautiful as always too. Wouldn’t it be great if they had another little one? Might explain Brad’s big smile in one of the previous threads. this family is blessed to have 6 gorgeous, healthy children and two loving parents.

  • homeof the D

    so she shows up for 2 days and that’s it? I f I was a person of the mission I wouldn’t allow her to come visit. Because she’s just visiting.

    other people are negotiating and doing the ACTUAL work.
    she just cares. I care too. Very much.

  • gracie

    Pic of Angie shaking hands with refugees on the Tunisian/Libyan border. She looks incredible with very little make-up. The crazies are out posting garbage as usual as if that will affect Angie doing her work. You go Angie, millions all over the world LOVE you including your hubby — BRAD.

    Angelina Jolie’s Visit to Tunisia Incites Near-Riot. and brad happy like donkey and shrek.

    ************************************************************
    Angie’s role is as an AMBASSADOR whose kindness and celebrity and good-will will HIGHLIGHT the plight of others in impoverished areas. She is not a politician and cannot negotiate,but I’m sure she would be allowed to assist in a diplomatic way to improve the lives of those in countries she has visited. As great as AJ is, she is not a President, so she should not be faulted for not exercising power and authority that she does not have.

  • homeof the D

    big deal.
    she’s just visiting.
    what a hy po crite.

  • http://J.com kaz simply Amaazingg !!!!!!!!

    In fact Bad woman and now look how act ,

  • My 2 cents

    @She does:
    If she is pregnant, I think they know where they will give birth France, this is why they are renovating French Chateau

  • woman spanish

    Good afternoon to all JP fans.
    Dark Angel, again I send my greetings and I hope that with time the pain becomes more bearable.

    Angelina is amazing, beautiful, compassionate, altruistic … each day that passes I am more proud to be your fan, the trolls are desperate, their idol can never live up to this wonderful woman.
