Angelina Jolie meeting with Syrian refugee families in an undisclosed refugee camp close to the Syrian border in eastern Turkey.
ANKARA, Turkey — Hollywood star Angelina Jolie says that with winter approaching, she is concerned about the plight of hundreds of thousands of Syrians forced to flee their homes.

Jolie, a special envoy for the U.N. refugee agency, was speaking in the Turkish capital Ankara on Friday, a day after she visited refugee camps along the border with Syria.

Jolie says that with the conflict in Syria showing no sign of abating, the coming winter is “a very large concern for all of us.”

She says she hopes “no one freezes to death in this very frightening time.”

Turkey is hosting about 80,000 Syrians who have fled the 18-month conflict in their country. Earlier this week, Jolie and UNHCR chief Antonio Guterres visited refugees in Jordan to draw attention to the crisis.

Angelina Jolie visits Syrian refugees in Turkey
.
CBS/AP) ISTANBUL – Angelina Jolie met with Syrian refugees in Turkey on Thursday to draw attention to the plight of the hundreds of thousands who have fled their nation’s civil war.

Jolie, who is a special envoy for the U.N. refugee agency, said the refugees had told her they were grateful to Turkey for its help. “And they are very, very emotional and very deeply saddened by the situation in Syria and very concerned about their families and their friends in their country,” the actress added.

Angelina Jolie in Jordan to visit Syrian refugees

The Oscar winner’s trip comes as Turkey grows increasingly concerned that the number of registered Syrian refugees on its soil – about 80,000 – is becoming difficult to manage.

Turkey has also been frustrated in attempts to persuade the international community to help set up safe havens for Syrian civilians inside Syria.

Jolie and Antonio Guterres, the U.N. high commissioner for refugees, met privately with refugees at two camps near the Syrian border. Jolie’s two-day itinerary in Turkey was also to include a stop in Ankara, the capital, for talks with officials including President Abdullah Gul.

Earlier this week, Jolie and Guterres visited Syrian refugees in Jordan, which is also sheltering those who have fled the 18-month-long conflict in neighboring Syria. Guterres said the sheer number of refugees is taking a toll on Jordan’s economy and resources. The Hollywood star also met with Syrian refugees in Lebanon.

The U.N. refugee agency has said the number of Syrian refugees seeking its help now tops a quarter-million – and could be far higher. Activists estimate some 23,000 people have been killed in the bloodshed in Syria since March 2011.

Turkey, which supports the Syrian opposition in its fight against President Bashar Assad’s regime, has maintained an “open door” policy for Syrians fleeing the violence. Turkey has spent more than $300 million on the refugee crisis and is building three new camps, raising the total number of camps to 14.

The UNHCR promoted Jolie from serving as a goodwill ambassador to special envoy in April because of her work for the agency. The actress also met with Syrian refugees in Turkey last June, and paid a two-day visit to Libya in October.

absolutely great human being!

Waouw, so smart.
The proof that you can be smart, you don’t need to be naked, and look very glamourous at the same time.

Ankara: Hollywood star and UN goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie Friday said she was concerned about the plight of Syrian refugees fleeing the unrest in their country.

“I share everyone`s concerns about the winter approaching… with the violence showing no signs of easing up and the number (of refugees) growing,” Jolie was quoted as saying in Turkish capital Ankara.

Accompanied by UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonia Guterres, the Oscar-winning actress held meetings with Turkish President Abdullah Gul and high-ranked Turkish officials.

On Thursday, Jolie visited two Syrian refugee camps in Turkey.

She met some of the 12,000 refugees at Oncupinar camp in Kilis city, and joined Syrian children who were singing in Turkish.

Jolie also visited Islahiye in Gaziantep province that is sheltering nearly 8,000 Syrians.

According to UN figures, the Syrian crisis has forced some 235,000 Syrians to flee to neighbouring countries, with 80,000 taking shelter in Turkey.

Jolie and Guterres were in Lebanon Wednesday where they discussed the refugee issue with Lebanese officials.
