5 years ago

Angelina Jolie is putting her name to good use once again to put the spotlight on Syrian Refugees in this new report that CNN aired on Thursday (March 27).

The 38-year-old actress, who is currently in Sarajevo visiting with victims of the Bosnian War, paid a visit to a Lebanese refugee camp to speak with a young girl named Hala and her five siblings.

"When I met Hala, and her brothers and sisters, they had been living in this camp for almost a year," Angelina said in the video about the children, who watched their mother die under their collapsed home and don't know where their father is.
