Angelina Jolie Thanks Lampedusa for Hosting Refugees

Angelina Jolie visits the Italian island of Lampedusa on Sunday (June 19).

The 36-year-old actress and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador thanked residents for hosting more than 40,000 refugees who have been fleeing the unrest and violence in north Africa.

Angelina traveled from Malta, where she made a stop at detention facilities, which held people waiting for their asylum requests to be processed.

“Malta has saved many lives, but it is the daily conditions on the ground that are of most concern. We’ve spoken about our shared concerns about making sure asylum claims are processed as quickly as possible so no one is sitting in a prison-like situation and waiting on a decision about their status,” Angelina said.

“They are not asking to go to any particular country, they just want to find safety to work and to have freedom,” she added.

On Friday, Angelina was in Turkey where she met with refugees at a camp near the border with Syria.

Charity always starts at home! You want your kids to have a better life? Do like Angie does actually do something or do a lot like she does.

Wonderful!

Helllo alll, Waving to fans. Hope you all had a good weekend.

Wow, I just love this woman and continue to reach out for those who have nothing and I am praying for her,brad and the kids.

*in* not i’d, stupid phone autofill lol.
@ Cora, if she “shut up already” as you think she should, then she wouldn’t be doing her job. You need to go find someplace else to play.

NATURALLY BEATIFUL!!!!! Yes, her face is like an angel, her soul is so devince. She don’t need to have a cosmetic surgery until she get as old as funiston. She not wearing any make up and yet she looks so amazingly beautiful, let’s see fugly funiston without make up and you can see your grandma profile in her face. More botox please!!!!

Anywayz, let me not waste my time talking about fugniston because my beautiful idol is on top of everything. Brad is so proud of her and so are her children. She’s showing good example to her children, give to others and you shall receive. She is trully blessed. Wonderful human being.

her soul is so devine… i should say.

Just as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside. This is what true beauty looks like. No makeup, unadorned hair, conservative outfit, and she’s radiating. Make it home safely, Angie.

BRAVO, YOU GO GIRL!

is she looking healthier? <33

No wonder Brad loves Angelina so much, she has a heart of gold.

DECADE LONG DEDICATION @ 06/19/2011 at 11:48 pm

Angie first became a UNHCR Ambassador in 2001 and now a decade later she has continued her dedication to helping others and through the Jolie-Pitt Foundation and Angie’s and Brad’s other various organizations like Make It RIght and the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation they have donated tens of millions of dollars and contributed greatly to society with their many programs they have started. They have not stopped in their dedicated and will. This dedication is truly admirable.

she should have a good time and party in Italy like it’s 1999. Brad and his blonde weave/ nappy britney spears extensions and high maintenance botox facial sessions got her looking like the life is being sucked out. she looks pretty here in the sun she needs a tan anyway.

What an inspiring and caring woman. This is the exact reason Brad fell in love with her along with millions of others.

Finally something else in hollywood to admire other than celebs with their latest designer fashion trends, bikini bods, tans, and hair. Angelina is of real substance and it shows in her full life of a loving family, success as an artist, and humanitarian dedication. She has changed and blossomed into a beautiful woman inside and out.

You bitter and hateful jen fans need to be ashamed of yourselves.
