Angelina Jolie: World Humanitarian Day Message!

Angelina Jolie has written a special message to her fans to honor World Humanitarian Day, which took place on Sunday (August 19).

“On World Humanitarian Day we remember the aid workers who have lost their lives in the line of duty and we honor the extraordinary courage and dedication of humanitarian workers around the world,” the 37-year-old UNHCR Special Envoy wrote on Facebook.

“I had the honor and the pleasure of meeting one of these brave individuals before his murder during a visit to Pakistan, where I witnessed first-hand the incredible devotion of a very kind and gentle man. His name was Mr. Zill-e-Usman,” Angelina added.

    manny is a home wrecker Says:

    What a lie- Angie’s no home wrecker – 8 years later, where is the proof? Yeah, I thought so. PROVEN home wreckers include Jennifer Aniston, Chelsea H, Tom Hanks, Rita W, Paul N, Joanne W, Kristen Stewart, Rupert the director, Laura Dern, Ben H and the list goes on & on. All of these people have admitted, been pictured cheating, and/or turned pregnant with their fellow cheaters baby.

    I don’t understand why people who don’t like her, stalk her. It’s the weirdest thing. If you don’t like someone you don’t pay attention to them.

    24 hours with Angie in Sarajevo
    Angie and kids were in the Presidential Suite of the Hotel Europe. The hosts were willing to shut down the whole floor so that no one could disturb them, but she didn`t accept it. She didn`t demand anything special neither for her nor for her kids. Her lecture in Sarajevo Talent Campus lasted 2 hours instead of 45 minutes as it was planned. She watched two short films with students. Some ITLOBAH cast members were there – Zana, Branko, Boris, J. Ornela, Ermin, Vanessa. She was talking to everyone and was in a good mood.
    While she was in Sarajevo Talent Campus children played with toys they got as a gift from Hotel Europe – lego, puzzles, cars, dolls, they played in the hotel pool and were given T-shirts with the logo of SF Festival. When Angie returned to the hotel around 21 pm, she organized a picnic for her children on the terrace on the 7th floor, ordered the Bosnian barbecue specialties and they had dinner together, laughing, joking and enjoying the view of the Bascarsija (famous street in Sarajevo)
    Next morning, Angie organized brunch for ITLOBAH cast where they were joined by director Aida Begic and actress Mary Pikic. After 1 pm she greeted with them and left the hotel with her children. Although Brad couldn`t come to Sarajevo he was not forgotten. Herzegovina winery Gentille sent him a crate of red wine Barrique, the wine that he drank and liked when he was in Bosnia.

    Why do haters insist on being here? Go away to lurk your old, fat and botoxed JA. Isn’t she the happiest, prettiest, smartest woman on earth for you? Don’t you think it as if it was true? Then go to her tread and leave AJ in peace. The world does know who is the best one in all senses….

    @anna: \

    At least she has less exs then Jennifer Aniston. Don’t throw around accusations like she’s a home wrecker and has many exs when Aniston broke up a 14 year relationship and has more than double the amount of exs than Angelina.

    UNHCR outraged at shooting of staff worker in Pakistan
    Press Releases, 16 July 2009

    The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, António Guterres, voiced his outrage at the shooting death of a UNHCR staff member at a camp outside the northwest Pakistani town of Peshawar today. Zill-e Usman was shot by unidentified gunmen in the Kutcha Gari camp on the border of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas in North-West Frontier Province on the morning of July 16. Another staff member was injured in the incident but is in stable condition in a nearby hospital. A guard working with the Commissionerate for Afghan Refugees, a government-funded agency, was also killed. Four to five gunmen reportedly opened fire on the victim as he was walking back from the camp administrative office to his car during a routine visit to the site.

    “Our deepest condolences to the family of Zill-e Usman,” said Guterres, noting that he leaves behind a wife and four children. “There is no justification for attacks on humanitarian workers dedicated to the protection and care of the most vulnerable people.” Guterres called on armed groups of all descriptions to cease attacks on humanitarian workers whose mission is to provide protection and assistance to the needy. UN staff gathered at headquarters in Geneva on Thursday at noon for a minute silence to honor their colleague.

    The killing was the third of a UNHCR staff member in Pakistan in the past six months. On June 9, staff member Aleksandar Vorkapic died in the bombing of the Pearl Continental hotel in Peshawar; on 2 February, Syed Hashim, UNHCR senior driver, was killed in the kidnapping of John Solecki, head of the Quetta office, who was later released. Zill-e Usman, 59, was a well-respected member of the local community and one of UNHCR’s most senior national staff members in Pakistan. He joined the UNHCR Peshawar office in 1984. At the time of the incident, he was working on the repatriation of people displaced by a conflict in Pakistan’s tribal areas that broke out in August 2008. UNHCR is providing assistance to some two million people displaced by more recent fighting in regions surrounding the Swat Valley who have sought shelter in the NWFP. “It is unacceptable that humanitarian workers doing such vital and selfless work are attacked in this way,” said Guterres. “We urge all armed groups to show respect for their countrymen and for innocent civilians as well as for the humanitarian workers who are providing life-saving assistance.”
