Angelina Jolie Visits Rescue Camp for Women

Angelina Jolie Visits Rescue Camp for Women

Angelina Jolie pays a visit to a rescue camp for women on Monday (March 25) in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The 37-year-old actress and UNHCR goodwill ambassador, who was joined at the site by the British Minister for Foreign Affairs William Hague, went to raise awareness for war zone rape in the area.

Sexual violence is used frequently as a weapon by rebel groups in the area.

The next day, Angelina and William payed their respects at the Gisozi genocide memorial during a wreath laying ceremony.

10+ pictures inside of Angelina Jolie visiting the Congo…

    this is a shame ¡ nobody speaks about the secret wedding or of the humanitarian mission
    how much has my boss paid to PEOPLE?

    HUVANE IS BAD, HE IS MY BOSS BUT VILLAIN
    I am going to cry of the emotion: (

    It’s not a wedding ring. I’m fairly sure (having seen alternate photos on other news outlets) that it is a yellow gold band with a small diamond stone set in it and that she has tried to keep the stone facing inwards so that it looks just like a simple gold band. Also, if it was a simple wedding band, there would have been no need to remove it for her visit to the International Rescue Committee camp. She didn’t remove her gold necklaces for this visit, so no need to remove a wedding ring.

    I am sure that she would have loved to have worn a proper pretend wedding ring in order to focus attention on her nuptials around the predicted time of Jennifer Anistons’ wedding. However, I don’t think she dared push Brad that far.

    She hasn’t worn the ‘promise for the future ring’ on other UN trips, so there was no need to wear a smaller substitute ring for this trip. This is a deliberate ploy to generate press attention as to whether she is now married. Jolie usually carries her bags on her right shoulder or right arm. When she wanted to show off her ‘promise for the future ring’ to photographers in LA shortly after the museum reveal, she made sure to carry her bag on her left arm and hold her left hand up so the photogs could all get good shots. At the airport for this trip, she is carrying her bag on her left shoulder and makes sure to put up her left hand to hold onto the strap when the photographers are snapping, so they definitely get a shot of the ‘is it or isn’t it’ ring and the speculation can begin.

    Angelina has been doing her humanitarian work for many years, nothing fake about that.

  • Frenchy

    Nobody cares about rings or necklaces dammit! Focus on the crisis on hand that’s real. Educate yourselves!

  • awwww

    Angelina is an angel.

  • busted

    Jared you are spoiling us.Thanks for the post

    I guess the thought of Angie and Brad getting married true or not really go the haters upset. Shame that they use such a notable cause to spread such ugliness. But the soul shows it true colors.

    Angie is an amazing woman. And I love how she lets nothing stop her from mission.

    Jared really needs to bring back the thumbs up, thumbs down option. Does he realize WHO gives his site the most hits, yes Jared, it’s the JP fans. There are a few JP sites out there that would never allow the scum he allows to post on their sites.

  • Emma

    I’d rather use my fame & influence to get attention to international crisis such as this instead of using it to tell people what expensive clothing you like for spring and why the public should should buy it also.

  • ASDFDG

    Where is the gun necklace??

  • Peapo

    Gorgeous. And a real role model. She stays out of the public eye when she isn’t working or doing charity. Her family comes first. She talks the talk and walks the walk. Good on her.

  • La Jolie

    Love you, Angie.

  • plez

    As Easter comes it is good to remember to try and help those that can’t help themselves.

  • derr

    Wars all over Africa and always at their root the control of rescources, whether gold,silver diamonds, oil, cocoa, uranium etc. by western industry and western bankers. All’s that is needed is a friendly puppet government. Rapes, violence, child soldiers, killings are the collateral damaget. Does Angelina evere get to the cause of such suffering ? in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya ? NO . S he is there for photo ops and to create the image that western powers are there to help. She has sold her soul to evil and it looks as if many want to follow her down.

    “I’m scared of GROUND CONTROL AND FALP.”
    .

    oh Rose,
    you’re so cute…please don’t be scared. GC and I are really quite harmless and our analytical/thinking styles, hence our ops and POV’s are just from an objective hard data bent. I obviously cannot speak directly for GC but I can surmise that it’s part of her and my training and mind-set…day to day decision making depends on objectivity and info collection. We do not have a choice LOL…it’s like driving a car…on autopilot and I probably can say on behalf of GC and myself…we mean no harm or offense…we’re both into educating, informing, passing on what we’ve learned etc. She can speak for herself when and if she wants to.
    I actually agree with you re: Samuels…what an unexpected nightmare for the Defense…he was not properly vetted. IMO they “trusted” him too much… possibly because his paper resume was full of “paid for” affiliations to appear “impressive” to the casual eye LOL. To be fair to them, they may or may not have been astute to or thought about what is referred to as “scope of practice” as defined for professions as a whole in State and National Codes versus “scope of competence” which is individually determined and subsequently defines capabilities within the profession which IMO is the heart of the criticism of Richard Samuels. Attacking him as an individual psychologist versus his profession as a psychologist is appropriate and fair. His “scope of competence” as an “expert witness” is sloppy. He appears to be in a daze re: his proficiency. In addition it appears Samuels did not even review his notes before he took the witness stand and/or ignored attorney prep up…skilled attorneys usually advise their witnesses/clients of potential questions by the opposition before taking the witness stand and often before depositions and/or having implied himself as an experienced trial witness, he should have queried about potential opposition questions if the attorneys did not voluntarily prep him…in a court of law where every word is recorded working on behalf of a client, a paid professional who is unprepared is a deal killer.
    .

    Rose, you’re a sweetheart…carry on and continue to have fun. Ignore me…I’m just doing my thing.
    .

    PS. “Cook” is “scared” of me too although he would never admit it…ROTFLOL.

  • Cassi

    Angie is an extraordinary woman.

  • no

    @derr:

    she does not represent western powers or whatever the F you are trying to say. Angelina does not make policy. She brings attention to such issues so that citizens can put pressure on policymakers to address these issues.

  • anon

    It’s funny how everyone is trying to be like Angelina in Hollywood. But there is only one Angelina Jolie.

  • Angie’s GOLD ring

    “CONFLICT MINERALS are minerals mined in conditions of armed conflict and human rights abuses, notably in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, by the Congolese National Army, and various armed rebel groups, including the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) and the National Congress for the Defense of the People (CNDP), a proxy Rwandan militia group. The looting of the Congo’s natural resources is not limited to domestic actors; during the Congo Wars, Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi particularly profited from the Congo’s resources. These governments have continued to smuggle resources out of the Congo to this day. The profits from the sale of these minerals finance continued fighting in the Second Congo War, and control of lucrative mines becomes a focus of the fighting as well.[1] The most commonly mined minerals are cassiterite, wolframite, coltan, and GOLD, which are extracted from the Eastern Congo, and passed through a variety of intermediaries before being purchased by multinational electronics companies.”

    you go girl

    My girl. I wonder if she and Brad will consider adopting a Congolese child that would put the spotlight on the desperately needy children in that country.

    Poor HENS have lost their minds. Oh wait you never had minds to begin with!!!!

    Yes all of Angelina’s jewels and her line with Procope are CONFLICT FREE and the gold used is recycled. That’s our Angelina. She didn’t have to go that route because she is the Queen and can do whatever she wants but she opted to be socially concious. By doing that she influenced others to do the same.

  • Dakota

    I also wish Jared would bring back the thumbs up/down. This is an important issue & the jealous haters should not be allowed to keep posting the same old crap they have for 8 years. It makes me want to move to under sites & read about this! You are amazing Angie with a heart full of love & compassion.

    Hey, FALP.
    .
    When the defense has the exact same resources and freedom to hire who they need and want as the prosecution then maybe we can even the playing field at trial. Until then it is always hit and miss with experts for the defense and even those defendants with their lives on the line will not be afforded the defense they are entitled to under the Constitution.
    .
    It isn’t even always about the money either – a lot of experts won’t work for the defense because then the side with more work to parcel out – the prosecution – will cut them off from business.

  • wow

    I am in awe of Angie. No wonder Brad chose her as the mother of his children not Aniston. Angie is amazing.

    Could you please tell us where Angie’s gold ring is from. Because I assume you must know.
    .
    In the end these countries need a market for their resources.
    .
    The answer to issues like blood diamonds and other minerals is not to stop the use of the materials or destroy their markets but to ensure you are buying conflict free diamonds and other resources.
    .
    By so doing you show that if the diamonds and minerals are delivered to market conflict free then they will be a great source of income to a country. That is something these countries need and will continue to need in the future as they struggle to wrest self control of their resources. Putting an end to the desire for diamonds and other resources will do nothing to help these countries in the future except continue to impoverish them. Mindless kneejerk reactions are never the answer.
    .
    Kudos to Angelina for publicly showing respect to those in the camp and using her time and energy to be a part of the solution. She is such a great role model. Her kids are very lucky.

    Just watched “Killing Them Softly” and loved it..once again, Brad Pitt proves he’s one of the most brilliant actors of our time.

    The most interesting fact about Angelina’s refugee visits is that no one ever asks to go home with her. After looking at her, they assume that wherever she is from there is no food either.
