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!

    Why not run with a smaller entourage
    —–
    Those are UN workers, U.N. refugee chief Antonio Guterres and Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh etc NOT Angelina’s entourage

    Angie is phenomenal. I have such admiration and respect for everything she has done and continues to do to give voice to refugees of war. She is such a poised and self-possessed woman, and her compassion is ALWAYS tempered with actively seeking resolutions. This is one of the things I love most about her. She just doesn’t show empathy, there’s always a call-to-action. She just doesn’t talk the talk. She walks it too.

    let me prize this amazing women again and again before the haters and jealous come her like dogs looking for bones.

    Angie is doing something that only a special and powerful women could do.

    Any person can talk but only few can walk in the real world. Angie is one of that kind of person.

    Angie with her presence in this camp have bring more attention to the refuge problems and Syrian war than all the dally news.

    Angie is a Powerful speaker and when she talks the world listening.

    Wasted on you dweebs Says:

    This is the planned destablization of the Middle East, like dominoes. The destruction of old regimes that were created by the West in the first place. In the power vaccuum will arise more militant muslim governments who will provide the west with a much greater enemy…War is big business., but it is paid for by the average person. Your children,grandchildren, and other relations will pay the price. Thanx angelinaf or helping the cause.

    REMEMBER 9/11 Says:

    REMEMBER 9/11 not this filthy PR hog. This is so like her to use 9/11 to get some attention. We Americans are remembering our hero’s. We are remembering our fellow Americans that didn’t make it out with any shirt on their backs. We are remembering our Firefighters & Police that lost their lives in OUR attack! We are remembering our fellow Americans that lost their husbands, fathers wives, mothers, children, sons, daughters, and so many others. This woman deserves zero recognition at all. The only site that would stoop this low is this site. No other site is talking about this phony PR hog. Leave it to JJ..

    groundcontrol Says:

    If you needed any more proof why Angelina needs to keep educating the public and shining a spotlight on the realities of the refugee plight then you’d need look no further than the ignorant and hateful trolls that actually delight in trying to derail a thread about the refugee.

    You have to wonder what these trolls are like in real life.

    Kudos to Angelina Jolie for continuing to embrace people who are so easy to ignore. Her commitment is beyond admirable.

    ANGELINA …..you make time to do humanitarian work, making sure the world is aware of what’s going on with people who are suffering. You don’t really have to do this but instead of going to the nicest beach vacation you can have, you rather help and bring attention to issues for us to see. YOU ARE TRULY AN LIVING ANGEL…… You are so beautiful, golden heart, smart, loving mother and wife (to be), and of course financially well-off. What else can we ask for….We really admire you and some envy your beauty and your kind hearted pesonality.. We love you and will continue to support you…..GO ANGIE!!!!!!!! YOU’RE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!

    Only Jolie Says:

    No other celebrity would pull this kind of PR crap except Angelina Jolie. She is trying to manipulate the American peoples day of horror to benefit her own desperate PR addiction. Just when you think she can not go any deeper into the gutter she does. Once an addict always an addict!

    credit EmmaV from celebitchy for thes spot on posts
    “She’s donated a lot of money over the years to multiple causes and by campaigning on their behalf, bringing it to worldwide attention, she can shame governments and people into doing things.

    She’s helped refugees who were living in the worst possible conditions for 15 years get homes just after 2 years (and before you complain it’s us governmetn money, the US had some fault in the war/conflict)
