Angelina Jolie meets Syrian refugees

Salam wa leykum dear fans and occasional readers hope you're doing fine.

In the past I don't even care about who Angelina Jolie was, since for me she was only one more of those American Actress that don't know what to do with their own lives, do you remember she even said she was Lesbian?

My opinion about her changed , when I remember have read on some place about her adoption of an African boy and then about her humanitarian work and of course about her new Romance (at that time) with Brad Pit, things were changing she became a more mature person, she had also said how she had learn to appreciate all what she has and has adopted "in her way" a more simple style of life, Today is not strange to see her visiting Arab countries again helping kids and families that had lost their homes and relatives due to the war, is not strange also see her wearing the Hijab, this time she and UNHCR chief Antonio Guterres heard about the difficulties people face in escaping war-torn Syria and the challenges of finding shelter for them in Lebanon.

Angelina Jolie In her role as the Special Envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Angelina spoke at the Zaatari camp, which hosts an estimated 27,000 Syrians who have fled the civil war in their country and are taking shelter in Jordan.

"I am very concerned, the world is very concerned," Angelina said. "What is very heartbreaking is when Syrian people ask you why you think no one is able to find a solution for them."

Angelina’s eyes welled up with tears as she recalled what she has been told about their plight.
"What they described on the ground, hearing it from them is so horrific," she said.

"When you meet so many innocent people and civilians, the people of Syria are asking who is on their side. `Who is going to help us as the months go on?'"

The mother of six said the refugees told her “there will be no more of us” left in Syria as the fighting continues. She met with Syrian refugee women and toured the camp with U.N. Refugee Chief Antonio Guterres and Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh.

"This mission that we are sharing has a key objective. It is to draw attention to the international community to express a much more stronger solidarity with Syrian refugees and the host countries that have kept their borders open to all those fleeing the conflict," said Guterres.
