Angelina Jolie Brings Shiloh & Zahara to Jordan to Meet Syrian Refugees

Angelina Jolie and her daughters are traveling to Jordan for an important cause.

The 42-year-old actress and her daughters – Zahara, 13, and Shiloh, 11 – are in the country to visit Syrian refugees at the Zataari refugee camp.

The trip marked Shiloh‘s third visit to a refugee camp and a first visit for Zahara.

“After seven years of war, most Syrian refugees have exhausted any savings they had. The vast majority of them already live below the poverty line, on less than three dollars a day. Imagine what that would mean for your family. Here, it means families going without sufficient food; children unable to get medical treatment; young girls vulnerable to early marriage; and many Syrians facing their seventh winter without proper shelter,” Angelina said during a speech.

The family was also able to meet with refugees who escaped violence in their home country and young girls taking part in the TIGER (These Inspiring Girls Enjoy Reading) project, which focuses on education and empowerment in displacement.

The program, which is in partnership with International Relief and Development, helps to fight the epidemic of refugees dropping out of school.
