Angelina Jolie Makes Humanitarian Trip to Afghanistan

Angelina Jolie, a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN's refugee agency, spent Wednesday and Thursday of last week touring Afghanistan for the first time to meet and talk to former Afghan refugees as they attempt to reintegrate themselves into the country they once called home. "The courage, resilience and quiet dignity of returnee families rebuilding their lives against the kind of adversity few of us can imagine shows the human spirit at its best," says Angelina in a statement on the website for the UNHCR.

"Afghanistan has been struggling to absorb these massive returns," explains Angelina. "It's understandable. It's one of the largest population movements in recent history."
