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!

    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!

    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.

    Luck Dragon Says:

    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.
