Angelina Jolie Visiting Libya

Angelina Jolie is visiting Libya to assist agencies bringing aid to Libyans.

“I have come to Libya for a variety of reasons, to see a country in transition at every level and to witness efforts to fully realize the promise of the Arab Spring,” the 36-year-old actress told Reuters.

“The country faces a host of challenges, including internally displaced people, refugees, rule of law, security, sanitation, education, health and other humanitarian needs. All of these pieces must be delivered and coordinated properly in an environment of reconciliation and justice,” she added.

“I will be meeting with officials from all sides but above all, listening to the local people in the street. I am here to express solidarity with them. It is the work of rebuilding and recovery that will determine Libya’s future,” Angie concluded.

Last week, it was announced that Angelina and partner Brad Pitt have donated $340,000 to a Somali aid group.
