On Wednesday, the United Nations received a cheque for $100,000 from actress Angelina Jolie as she sought to mark World Refugee Day.
For the last ten years, Jolie has served not just as a goodwill ambassador for the UN but has also been a Special Envoy for the UNHCR or the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. She has spent a lot of her time and energy to promote humanitarian efforts across the globe.
She has now put in some of her own money so that aid can be sent out where it’s needed.
Jolie appealed to other Americans to also do everything they could put a serious dent in the refugee crisis so that long-term solutions could be found for those who have to needlessly suffer because of unresolved conflict.
