Angelina Jolie, along with Brad Pitt, is the star of several blockbusters. Among them are Girl Interrupted and Mr. and Mrs. Smith, he happened to meet Pitt. But perhaps her most famous portrait is the busty Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider movies. During the filming of the first film, most of which was shot on the spot in Cambodia, Jolie witnessed a beautiful environment, absorbing culture and widespread poverty in the country. He says it opened his eyes and it was his step towards humanitarian work. After Cambodia, Anglina Jolie traveled to Sierra Leone and Tanzania in 2001, where she first became actively involved in humanitarian affairs. The purpose of this deadly journey was to find out firsthand the conditions that the refugees had to face. Angelina was so shocked that shortly afterwards, in August 2001, she was appointed Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).


UNHCR assists more than 20 million refugees in 120 countries. They are made to protect and protect the well-being and rights of refugees. He believes that refugees have the right to seek asylum in another country and are actively seeking to join countries to unite and support refugees. To date, in just 5 decades, they have helped more than 50 million people worldwide.


Angelina's contribution greatly helped to attract wider attention in this meritorious cause. As a goodwill ambassador, his role is to communicate and target refugees by attracting the attention of the mass media. Although in the case of Jolie, it's not just superficial. He really spent most of his time and was really affected by her grief. During her trip to Ecuador, Jolie wrote of suffering: "People's lives are really in danger - not just in the feeling that you feel that your city is not safe - their lives are in fact in danger and their house has burned down."


To further raise public awareness, Jolie publishes various personal diaries about her field visit experiences. For more information, visit unhcr.org.


In addition to the physical effort Jolie has contributed, her foundation with partner Brad Pitt, called the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, recently donated $ 1 million to groups working in Darfur. Darfur is a war-torn region of Sudan that Jolie has visited three times. Jolie now plans to spend most of her time on humanitarian efforts, revealing that she shares her actress' salary in three ways; the third for savings, the third for living costs and the third for charity. He is considered to have ordered a high salary for the films, as well as product quotes equal to the large amount donated.


Jolie has two adopted children and is currently thinking about a third. Maddox, a Cambodian refugee she adopted in 2002, and Zahara, an Ethiopian refugee. She also has a child with Brad Pitt, named Shiloh. Jolie and Pitt indicated that she would continue to promote and actively participate in humanitarian goals, as well as pursue her acting ambitions.
