Jolie, who is UNHCR Special Envoy, released a statement regarding the situation of refugees. Here are some extracts:
"UNHCR believes even 1 person forced to flee is too many. And it’s true. Every individual refugee matters. Each has their own story. Each has suffered and survived more than I could ever bear. And yet, they rise up to live another day."
"Unfortunately, the world is producing displaced people faster than it is producing solutions to displacement. And the solutions are not exclusively humanitarian – they are also political. The international community should rededicate itself to preventing conflict, addressing it when it erupts, and solving it more quickly, for that is the only way to create durable solutions for the refugees whose strength inspires us on this World Refugee Day."What do you think of Angelina Jolie's latest humanitarian act?Make sure to follow 6lyrics on Twitter and Facebook!
