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!

We will Remember @ 09/11/2012 at 12:14 pm

The only thing the American people care about today is 9/11. No one is ever going to remember anything this creature without a soul has done. But 9/11 will be remembered FOREVER! Unless you are these trolls that are so naive to think she really pulled this media stunt out of the goodness of her black heart!

An alum from SOS becoming a lawyer funded by her to work for other homeless children:

She is amazing. So passionate, intelligent and lovely. Also, she looks so healthy, beautiful and radiant here. She’s glowing. Love the Jolie-Pitts!

Angelina has the biggest and most generous heart <3. She cares so, so much, it is very obvious. This world is a better place with her in it. As I have said before she is an inspiration to me and my young daughter. I am proud of her and I am poud to be a fan. Love ya Angelina! You are truly the best- and Brad too – two big hearts doing so much good.

“She’s done SO much more. UNHCR is the only ones that get publicized for what she does, but like you say some celebrities do hidden work, she does A LOT MORE hidden work than most celebriteis in additoin to her public charity work.

She’s also donated money (she gave like $1000 gift cards) to soldiers at walter reed (and this was only publicized because a soldier’s wife took photos and posted it on her blog)


Ya she has such a big heart that she shares her love by humping her bro. How romantic:)

bahahaah…trollz in agony.urinated x struggling her words eh.while my girl anjie, so much goodness.

This is a very sad situation, but it would be really nice if Angelina would bring attention to Americans living in the U.S. who can’t feed their children and are homeless. We Americans MUST help our own citizens now! We cannot solve the world’s problems, nor shoud we! We must not spend anymore taxpayer money on helping other countries, while neglecting our people here at home!

nomake up, but she looks great!!! super!!

Well, JJ has proven that he must control Jolie’s hits. He is now messing with the thumbs up/down so you cannot thumb her good comments down. At least we now know he admits to her being a phony. She is the lowest form of scum for trying to take away from that terrible day America suffered. Jolie is nobody and JJ has just proved it!

@Bad JJ:
go scream at the ocean

I have to say, even dress down, visiting a refugee camp, she is so beautiful. Ths is natural beauty, people. What makes it even better, she has beauty inside. Be safe, Angelina.

Last time I checked Jolie is a private citizen and she do whatever the hell she wants with her money … She has always supported men and women is uniform …

i am an american and i can care about and remember 9/11 as well as the plight of others in the world.
it is very shortsighted to care only what happens in your backyard. we are all citizens of the world.
i don’t know how anyone can be critical of what angelina is doing for refugees.




is it horrible for my first thought to be “she’s so gorgeous” in this post? anyway, happy to see she’s still as committed to her cause as ever.

You speak the truth Mimi. My God this woman has no shame. She picks a day like today to pretty much say “Americans could have it worse!” It is not our responsibility to feed and take care of the entire world. Our country fell apart 11 years ago and this piece of trash decides we should not remember our day. She trys to put the attention on Syria. A terrorist country. She has no soul and she is no doubt missing a sensitivity chip! She is heartless!

Go hor! Go hor! I hope she remembered to pack her poverty shawl. Yes this is wonderful, another useless trip to a hopeless situation sponsored by the corrupt bureaucracy that is the UN. Oh wait it’s not entirely useless, it got her a little press. Too bad it will never erase her junkie past.
Lmao at loons praising her for risking her life when she’s surrounded by a hundred flacks and summarily escorted back to her luxury hotel after an hour or two of fake empathy. Now if it really was as dangerous for her as loons like to imagine, what sane parent would do this if she had six little ones at home? It just goes to show you how deep her delusion and crazy is. Brad needs to put the pipe down and become a parent for once and finally admit his baby mama in a mental institution.

Hehehe,Dolly thinking thoughts that JP fans id!ot like JenKukKuk’s fans huh ?
Beyonce Not here,…Doggy yo sista and FO
Poor FatF*ckers huh ? must B@rking for their living .

Beautiful people @ 09/11/2012 at 1:03 pm

A beautiful woman with a beautiful heart…….. what more could Brad ask for.

Isis Lara @ 09/11/2012 at 1:06 pm

She is such an “anomaly”. It definitely takes guts to go over there and look at the despair and horror in the refugees’ eyes. It sucks to be cynical because either way you look at it there is absolutely nothing wrong with how she handles her mission.

Whamo gone megashite come,then tamshite on the way,
3 in one = Dolly
Someone is still banging her head on the wall and be Ca Ca & Barren !

how gorgeous is she! it’s almost unbelievable actually! And, it’s funny how people and some sections of media go on an on about maliging her image, but there she is, trying to do something that matters wayyyy more than their Deluded obsession with brangelina vs brad n jen, which was like decades ago!!! those people need to get a life of their own
