Angelina Jolie Visits Refugees In Colombia

Angelina Jolie mixed business with pleasure on Sunday during a tour to the San Miguel River between Ecuador and Colombia.

In her new role as the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Special Envoy, Jolie met with a 71-year-old woman in the village of Barranca Bermeja which hosts 50 families, 60 percent of which are Colombian refugees.

Angelina was dressed all in black and wore rubber boots for the muddy terrain and listened intently as the woman spoke and she made sure to take notes.

The Oscar-winner got in the pleasure part of her trip by traveling with fiancé Brad Pitt and their six children for a tour of the nearby Galapagos Islands.

During her work as UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, Jolie has “conducted more than 40 field visits around the world” but will now focus on “large-scale crises resulting in the mass displacement of people,” an announcement from the Agency said.
