Angelina Jolie is really doing all she can to bring attention to the plight of Syrian refugees in the Middle East. For this visit, she brought her nine year old daughter, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, along. Get your kleenex ready and then check out the video of them meeting a refugee family.
Listening to the kids talk about watching bombs drop, and the destruction that comes with that, is heartbreaking. One little girl they met was named Hala, who’s living in a refugee camp with her brother. They saw a house- yes, a house- fall on their own mother. OMG.
Angelina said about bringing Shiloh:
Shiloh is very aware that I hold refugee families in high regard and has been asking to come on missions and meet them for many years.
“Upon leaving the family, Shiloh asked many questions. It is of course hard to explain all of the harsh realities of war and displacement. She said she felt sad, but was happy that she went and is looking forward to the next visit.”
Learn about the plight of the millions of people who are trapped in refugee camps. It really is a crisis, even if it’s one that world leaders don’t seem all that eager to address. Get your kleenex ready first, though. You’ll need it.
