Angelina Jolie Visits Syrian Refugees in Jordan

Angelina Jolie makes a special visit to meet with refugees on the Jordanian border minutes after they crossed over from Syria on Monday (September 10) in Amman, Jordan.

The 37-year-old actress, who is also a UNHCR Special Envoy, met with some of the over 200 refugees who fled the violence in Syria that evening.

“I am very concerned, the world is very concerned,” Angelina said (via Washington Post). “What is very heartbreaking is when Syrian people ask you why you think no one is able to find a solution for them.”

“What they described on the ground, hearing it from them is so horrific,” she added about the moving stories of children. “When you meet so many innocent people and civilians, the people of Syria are asking who is on their side. ‘Who is going to help us as the months go on?’”
