Angelina Jolie was media mobbed while visiting a refugee camp in Greece. Other than an A listed actor, she is an UNHCR goodwill ambassador.
She visited and stayed in the port for about 30 minutes and termed the living situation of the refugees as “deteriorating humanitarian situation”.
She spoke to several UN peacekeepers. “I look forward to meeting authorities, partners and volunteers working on the ground to improve conditions and ensure the vulnerable are protected,” she said in a statement about her trip. “I hope the presence of Angelina Jolie will do something to help open the border,” said Bichal, a 23-year-old Syrian woman from Aleppo. “I’ve been in Greece for a month and I’m still waiting to cross the border and go to Germany,” she told AFP.
