In a speech given at the U.N.’s European headquarters, Jolie spoke of her work with Somalian and Afghani refugees was “moving, sometimes heartbreaking, but always rewarding, and unforgettable.”

“They are the most vulnerable people in the world, and they are also the most resilient people in the world,” the actress told U.N. diplomats and officials. “Refugees are survivors, they are mothers and daughters and fathers and sons, they are all extraordinary people who have a remarkable story that tells of strength in the face of great loss,” she said. “They need our help more than ever.”
