Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie is reaching out to the people of Haiti after the magnitude 7.0 earthquake that struck the Caribbean country in early January. The mother-of-six is pictured above with Secretary General Edmond Mullet in his office at MINUSTAH’s Logbase, now the temporary UN Headquarters in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on Tuesday (February 9).
Angelina, 34, is raising awareness for the SOS Children’s Villages’ emergency relief program to provide 30,000 Haitian children with food, medical supplies and treatment as well as trauma therapy through its network of community centers.
In a statement released to Celebrity Baby Scoop, CEO of SOS-USA, Heather Paul, stated:
Today Angelina lifted the spirits of Haitian children who have lost everything and of the dedicated SOS staff who care for them. It’s wonderful that this world renowned actress insists that it is always children at great risk who should be center stage.”
