Angelina Jolie visited refugees at the Jordan border recently.
The 38-year-old actress,who had undergone double mastectomy earlier this year,was photographed crouched down listening to stories from refugees and taking notes,reported Us magazine.
On UNCHR’s website she wrote the purpose of her visit.
“To show support for Syria’s refugees,to call on the world to address their plight,and to better understand needs in Jordan and other countries in the region most directly affected by this devastating conflict.”
The international response to this crisis falls short of the vast scale of this human tragedy.Much more humanitarian aid is needed,and above all,a political settlement to this conflict must be found,” the website read.
Jolie traveled solo on the trip as her fiancé Brad Pitt is busy promoting his new film World War Z.
