Angelina Jolie: Zaatari Refugee Camp Visit

Angelina Jolie holds hands with a little girl during a visit to the Zaatari refugee camp on Thursday (December 6) in Mafraw, Jordan.

This is the 37-year-old actress’ second trip to the region in three months to meet with the civilians that are being targeted.

“What I saw last night is a dramatic example of the plight of hundreds of thousands of Syrians who have been uprooted by the fighting and are in a desperate search for safety,” Angelina said to the UNHCR. “Civilians inside the country are being targeted. Many of those trying to flee are exposed to extreme danger right up to the border itself. I appeal to all sides in the conflict to do all they can to ensure the safe passage of these innocent civilians.”

    Leave it to Jolie to bring to the attention of people the plight of these misplaced children and refugees, they should just appoint her as the head of the UNHCR, she seems to have the brains, charm and the tact to be one of the best negotiators when it comes to the Middle East especially. Talented actress, lovely lady and just a cool, gutsy person. Assad is killing his own people by the thousands, including children and the rest of the world just sits around and watches. It’s very sad.

    STORY: JORDAN / ANGELINA JOLIE
    TRT: 2:39
    SOURCE: UNHCR
    RESTRICTIONS: NONE
    LANGUAGE: ARABIC/ ENGLISH / NATS

    DATELINE: 5-6 DECEMBER 2012, ZA’ATRI CAMP, JORDAN, JORDAN-SYRIA BORDER

    UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie travelled to the Jordan-Syria border overnight to meet frightened and exhausted Syrian refugees who had just completed the perilous crossing to safety in Jordan.

    SOUNDUP (English) Angelina Jolie, Actor and Special Envoy for the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR):
    “Salam. Please sit down. I come to you. Hello, hello.”

    This family moved from Damascus to their home town of Daraa four months ago. They hoped that the situation would improve, but finally it was too much.

    The mother says they had no choice but to flee. There was no electricity, no water, no food and most of all no safety.

    Tears fill the youngest daughter’s eyes as her mother talks of their ordeals.

    SOUNDUP (English) Angelina Jolie, Actor and Special Envoy for the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR):
    “Bye sweetie, it’s going to be ok.”

    This family is joining tens of thousands of others who have already fled to Jordan and surrounding country.

    Today (6 December) Jolie returned to the camp to meet more refugees and the family she talked to before.

    SOUNDBITE (Arabic with English interpretation) Woman refugee:
    “When the bombing got really fierce and hard and non-stopping, they use to hide in the holes under the ground. Even with the children, because it is safe, especially at night, so when the weather got bad and raining started to take place, all of these holes under the ground were flooded with water, so it wasn’t suitable. Also they didn’t have enough bread in the bakery and it was also another reason that they started to suffer shortage of food, so because of the weather conditions, because of the rain they were not able to stay in those sheltered areas”.

    She also saw how efforts have been made to help the refugees deal with the winter condition.

    SOUNDUP (Arabic with English interpretation) Teenage refugee and UNHCR representative:
    “I told him indeed if you have chance to go to school, you should.”

    SOUNDUP (English) Angelina Jolie:
    “We need him as a future of Syria.”

    Nearly half a million Syrians fleeing intensified fighting have been registered in neighbouring countries since the conflict began. Hundreds of thousands more are unregistered, but are expected to come forward for help in the next few months as their resources are depleted.

    Since the UNHCR special envoy’s last visit in September, the number of registered Syrian refugees in the region has increased by more than 200,000 and in Jordan alone by nearly 50,000. The sprawling Za’atri refugee camp north of Amman has doubled in size.

    Angelina Jolie and her partner, Brad Pitt, made a donation of US$50,000 Thursday afternoon for the purchase of family tents for refugees.

    um why is that the media can’t report Angie just was or is in Jordan or where ever she is than attaching it with the tabloid story of something? I mean they can report about when celbirtity sell cloths, or stuff so why not humanetrialzim can’t be a headlien by itself for ET news people? stupid isn’t it?
    .
    btw outtouch saying they set a date. How do they know. This things are rarely righ. 1 time out of 100 so who can believe anything with that problablity?

    ******
    Not only Assad but also some of anti-Assad groups have been also doing enormous atrocity toward Syrian citizens.
    Free Syrian Army was believed to be a leading force among many anti-Assad groups but it turned out that some al-Qaeda members were involved in that group and also killing innocent people.
    That was the reason US and others had stopped supporting that group and worked to form the National Coalition for Revolutionary Forces.

  • Jolie’s Got Gold

    Wow, not only is she beautiful inside out she is also very humbling. Thank you Angie and Brad for all that you do to make the world a better place. I am sure you are making a big positive differences in the lives of the those less fortunate. Blessings to the Jolie Pitt family!

  • bizzy bee

    There’s no amount of publicity, money, whatever that would be worth the risks Angie takes with her humanitarianism. It clearly comes from the heart, and the UN knows it.

    People try to put a stigma on certain women, labeling some as wife material, bad girls, etc. The naysayers would never expect Angie to be such an upstanding citizen, while the so-called girl next doors and America’s sweetheart types aren’t doing anything with their lives.

  • Julia

    @bizzy bee: Maniston has empty life, all she does is keep that botox coming. If she used some of that money spent on botox/fake hair/fake life/buying fake friends Maniston could save a village.

  • Eva

    Jennifer Aniston’s headline news is all about her giving a party like wow, why is she news worthy? She does not have the looks, brains or heart to help. All she does is put her face in St Jude, why does she follow up and show some of the kids she saved their lives instead of doing the charity for publicity and taxes. Angie is a true woman, she talks the talk and walk the lives of those suffering and she relay the message. Going to international is not safe for Angie and that’s how much she cares. Saint Angie, you are a beautiful human being!

  • carry

    @Eva: pls stop with that woman. No one cares what she does or doesn’t do. Most of them ( honestly) they don’t do it form heart . Only a few like Angie are always in it. Constantly.

  • LooseLipz

    @tamsin:

    Brilliantly said. It’s all about Angelina trying to fix her past reputation.
    My advice to her is to stay home and raise her own children who she abandons for her own ego.
    Her visits are nothing but PR. She loves to come off as some saint when under the facade she’s a moody dark woman.

  • Ms Piggy & Kermit

    If Maniston couple (Kermit & Miss Piggy) are so happy, why is she and her multiple selves here posting all the time?!!! Maybe she should spend time with her beau instead of blogging. She could loose her Kermit and she is lucky she has a man now. Just saying. Cheers to all!

    I watched the video I posted above again & again! I am teary eyed, my heart goes out to these innocent civilians with their children in winter and what they are going through is an unimaginable ordeal! This is so inhumane, unacceptable—it really breaks my heart!

    I despise the hateful comments towards this wonderful woman & man. What have these LOSERS aka trolls done in their lives besides sitting in front of their computers spewing hatred. Shame on you haters for having the gall & audacity to think you have the right to criticize Angie & Brad for their humanitarian work! What have you done lately to help others in need?
    You can attack them for their movies or as actors, it is a personal preference—as Brad said ‘it is fair play’.

    But, when the haters start attacking JP’s humanitarian work, their donations, their parenting and especially their kids—it proves to everyone that their hatred is actually an acute case of jealousy, stupidity and/or ignorance.

    Safe journey home Angelina. May goodness, peace and love follow you and your family all the time. Happy Holidays.

    WithI was just listening to/half-watching the ABC7 News while preparing for work when news about the situation in Syria came on. The news reporter ended with mention of “actress and Special UN envoy Angelina Jolie” making a trip to Jordan and meeting with the refugees. Thank heavens there was none of that crapola about her quitting acting. This was a serious news report and Angelina was accorded her due as UN rep. About time!

  • neer

    My take on AJ’s reply about her thinking of giving up acting as the time comes is what she feels TODAY For now. Anything can happen between now & the future depending on her situation & circumstances. Whether she may change her mind or not, that’s her choice. Her decision. A personal decision in life. Actually, she has made it very clear in her past interviews that her priorities have changed ever since she has formed a family with BP. Her priorities are in this order: FAMILY, CHARITY & CAREER. So it is no surprise if once in a while we hear from her regarding her career decision. She was asked about this again because of the seemingly greater amount of time, money & effort she is spending for her humanitarian work. The dedication she has shown just amazes the public. Hence, it seems her acting profession has taken a back seat. Family of course will always be her ultimate priority. No question about that. Fortunately, AJ & BP has found a way to make it work despite their busy schedules.
    .
    Bear in mind, that AJ has already accomplished so much at an early young age. She has experienced critical & commercial success. Awards, she has many as well as box office hits. She will not be one, if not, the most sought after actress in the world for nothing. Her name is widely known around the world not just an actress BUT a credible humanitarian.
    .
    She has just learned to expand her horizons. Her world is not confined anymore to the land of Hollywood. She has evolved. Usually, people who have everything in life will find other avenues to fill their other needs which can never be satisfied by any material gains. Her need for self actualization or self-realization is just so strong that she is willing to sacrifice her least priorities in life just so she can spend more time with her family & what she is passionate about. Her UNHCR, CFR & other humanitarian work/ advocacy gives her so much inner peace & fulfillment. Her desire to serve others is just really great & special. This really means so much to her.
    .
    Come to think of it, even some of her career work lately has been in relation to her humanitarian work. Her first film directorial job (ITLOBH) as well as a screenwriter was obviously was born out of her advocacy. Same with her first documentary film, A Place In Time. So, maybe even if she may give up acting eventually or she may just do very few movies in between, I think she may not give up directing & writing as she finds more satisfaction in this area.
