Angelina Jolie: UNHCR Ceremony & Tribute!

Angelina Jolie attends a UNHCR ceremony honoring Yemeni humanitarian aid group Society for Humanitarian Solidarity on Monday (October 3) in Geneva, Switzerland.

The 36-year-old actress was also recognized for her 10 years as a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador.

“I’m so grateful to the many refugee families that I have had the honor and privilege to spend the last years with. From them I’ve learned so much. I’ve learned to become a better person, a better mother,” Angelina said. “They’ve inspired me by showing me every day the unbreakable strength of the human spirit.”

Angie also called for help for refugees fleeing war-torn Somalia.

“We must not forget what is happening in this part of the world. We must not forget how desperate they are when the only alternative is to risk death at sea and put their lives in the hands of ruthless smugglers,” she told the crowd.

FYI: Angelina is wearing a white double face crepe 3/4 sleeve sheath from the Michael Kors Spring 2011 collection.

Angelina, you are the most amazing, beautiful, caring woman that has ever walked this planet!

good for you jolie…i love everything about you..amazing…

True Beauty inside and out!

i can see how she genuinely cares about the causes she supports. you get the sense that a lot of celebs just do charity work or support causes because they want to add it to their resume to build a good image of themself in the media. i never get that feeling from angelina though, she’s very smart and very invested in her charity work.

The JP Nation spoke, and Jared heard.
Hi Fans!
Jolie is an inspiration to all of us. She doesn’t have to invent a life, she lives it to the fullest everyday. I love her independence, her drive and her compassion for others.

A very unique woman... @ 10/03/2011 at 9:43 pm

There are so many adjectives for her… smart, beautiful, courageous, talented, compassionate, sexy, generous, kind, adventurous, …

Lovely woman, inside and out.
I love how AJ always deflects the praises bestowed on her by giving credit to others. Some people would stand there, preening like they did everything on their own.

what is wrong with her hands? keep doing charity


Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh baby. i sitting and listen

While I admire Angelina’s commitment to these issues, I find it ironic that she herself looks malnourished and not as healthy and well-fed as the people she is speaking for.

She is genuine and I respect her for the choices she’s made and the way she has decided to live her life.

Amazing keep up the great work!
