“You don’t need help because you are poor, but because you are the future of Iraq,” said Angelina Jolie to the citizens when she visited the country.

angelina in iraq 3The US Magazine wrote that the actor visited Iraq Thursday this week and that she stays one day in the country. She visits four families from the Abu Graib-district, located vest for the capitol of Baghdad.

Angelina Jolie is an FN-Ambassador and has visit conflict arias around the world before. In August 2007 the Hollywood actor visited a refugee camp whit 1200 refugees in Iraq and she has also visited Syria earlier.

Before she left Iraq this time she said to the people;” I want to come back and find you in a better place and in a different situation.  I hope that UNHCR and the government will support you in getting a piece of land. You people need help not because you are poor, but because you are the future of Iraq”.

For a long time Angelina Jolie has used her fame and position to make the world aware of the problems in various regions of the world. I think she does a very good job at this and that she really cares about the refugee she meets. She is not just an actor but warm and tender person who really cares and who understand that the interest she generates as an actor can be used to make the rest of us aware of problems in poor and conflict ridden areas of the world.  Keep up the good work Angelina!
