Angelina Jolie continues humanitarian work in Malta


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: So many celebrities talk the talk. Angelina Jolie walks the walk.

Usually we don’t hear about the A-lister’s humanitarian efforts. And the fact that she doesn’t do it for exposure or headlines makes her work all the more noble. But reporters learned that Jolie visited two islands in the southern Mediterranean Sea on Sunday to “highlight the refugee crisis in the region, which is absorbing an unprecedented wave of asylum seekers fleeing starvation and political upheaval in Africa,” PEOPLE reports.

Jolie, 36, a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, met with refugees at facilities near Malta’s airport and told local journalists that the people she met “just want freedom.”

“Malta has saved many lives, but it is the daily conditions on the ground that are of most concern,” Jolie said. “We’ve spent time today speaking with the government and will spend more time talking about how, together, we can make the conditions more humane, especially for the children. We’ve spoken about our shared concerns about making sure asylum claims are processed as quickly as possible so no-one is sitting in a prison-like situation and waiting on a decision about their status.”

And if you happen to see a building or landmark lit in blue today, it’s because Monday is World Refugee Day, meaning the United Nations will light the Empire State Building and Rome’s Colosseum, to name just a few.
