Angelina Jolie: Zaatari Refugee Camp Visit!

Angelina Jolie pays a visit to the Zaatari Refugee Camp on Tuesday (September 11) near the Jordanian border with Syria.

The 37-year-old actress and UNHCR special envoy was joined by UN High Commission for Refugees staff to visit some of the more than 250,000 refugees who have fled Syria. The United Nations is calling the humanitarian problems sparked by the conflict their “biggest crisis”.

“It’s been a very heavy experience, because oftentimes you come to these camps and … very rarely do you … meet them as they cross the border and you get to know people the moment they become a refugee,” Angelina said in a press conference. “The moment they’ve forever lost their home, their livelihood, their education, everything they have been is gone, and when I ask them, ‘What did you bring?’ they say ‘This’ (plucks at her shirt) ‘The shirt on my back.’”

The evening before, Angelina visited some refugees minutes after they made it across the border.

Watch The Today Show‘s special reporter Ann Curry reporting from the scene below!

This is very important, I’m very happy that she’s bringing awareness to the situation. So depressing

# 3

God bless her for hwlping bring the spotlight to the suffering

Everyone should move to Syria and see how life is spent there. And Im not referring to anyone in particular…..

# 5

She has a big heart and cares deeply about refugee issues,wow she is stunningly beautiful,has the brains plus a big heart lucky brad

# 6

I swear she never ages. Her and Nick Cage are vampires and they are part of an underground Hollywood-Vampire association – Brads probably in on it!

How Convenient 4 Her @ 09/11/2012 at 11:07 am

Leave it to this “D” list celeb to use 9/11 for her own selfish PR antics. Get off this site and turn on MSNBC to see the horror our people lived through. This woman has no soul. She is a PR wh@re an always will be. This stunt is the bottom of the barrel for her. She mocks 9/11 and uses it for her own gain while we are praying and grieving our own loss. What a scuzball!

Its easy to blame someone from outdoors when we, the americans, are guilty of what has happened around.

Nice to see Ann covering angie

@How Convenient 4 Her:
go kill yourself because you are the most pathetic troll ever

So the pap’s just happen to be there? Umm, obvious that someone lovessssss the attention and wants to look like she’s so saintly. Which of course she’s not.

Very sad situation but why? That question is for bigger minds, not flat lander propagandists like Jolie who like to cry and apply Band-Aids. She is never critical of those responsible.

@lurker: R u mental? Get a clue. Today is a sad day for alot of people who lost there loved ones.

most beautiful womon i’ve ever seen !!

somali girl @ 09/11/2012 at 11:17 am

Not a big fan but she looks great.

Sad that in 8 years jen hags still did not get the clue,They need to get a life right now its almost a decade enough with the bs,Angelina is in a league of her own,she is just amazing

Luck Dragon @ 09/11/2012 at 11:18 am

I do wonder if she bragged about the millions of dollars her and her staff got paid on Maleficent. Why not run with a smaller entourage and donate half of her ridiculous salary to these poor people? A 2 day journey full of cameras for her own publicity is disgusting. Go alone, on a commercial flight, no cameras and then you can pretend to be Mother Theresa.

@Grim Reaper Jolie:
Diplomacy 101 or are you fuc*ing dumb??? she is there to fucus on the refugees she is not a politician,leave it to them to go aftter who is wrong

Sometimes is better to zip your mouth if you have nothing better to write,certain comments are just stupid and uncalled for in this situation,This woman is the real deal donating her money and her heart

God yure dumm lurker @ 09/11/2012 at 11:23 am

the bought politicians will go after who is wrong LOLOLOLOLOL

Cheap attention wh(o)re.
