Actress Angelina Jolie travelled to Nairobi, Kenya, to mark the World Refugee Day on 20th June.
The Salt actress has been an ambassador for United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) since 2001, and according to Entertainment Tonight, she started the Humanitarian trip on Tuesday by visiting about 20 refugee girls who were separated from their families and are now living in a safe house. These girls have fled extreme conditions and have faced abuse.
During her visit, Jolie said, “Over half of all refugees and displaced people worldwide are women and children. How we treat them is a measure of our humanity as nations. On World Refugee Day my only ask is that people consider the pain and suffering of young girls like these. Not only they had to flee extreme violence or persecution, lost everything and witnessed the death of family members, but they have also had to face so much abuse and intolerance and hardship.”
