Salt star Angelina Jolie, who serves as a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN’s refugee agency, made her way to flood-stricken Pakistan this week to urge the international community to aid in recovery efforts for the country.
In a statement via The Huffington Post, Jolie said,
I am very moved by them and I hope that I am able to, today and tomorrow, be able to do something to help bring attention to the situation for all of the people in need in Pakistan.”
Jolie donned the traditional attire that many of the country’s Muslim women wear, while she visited families that had lost both family members, and possessions in the wake of the flooding. 17 million people have been affected by the flooding, which began after a monsoon hit the region in July, and 1700 have died.
Jolie was alone for the trip, and there were no sightings of partner Brad Pitt or the couples’ six children.View Slideshow »»
