31 Incredible Acts of Good Will + Angelina Jolie Visits Afghanistan

— October 27, 2008 — Social Good
Angelina Jolie went to Afghanistan for the first time after being deeply touched by refugees. Once in Afghanistan, the Goodwill Ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees broke down in tears. Respectfully, she dressed in traditional Afghan apparel when she went to visit Nangarhar and Kabul, but even below the robes she couldn’t hide her emotions.

“Since the fall of the Taliban in 2001 more than five million Afghans have returned home,” Angelina Jolie said. “Afghanistan has been struggling to absorb these massive returns. These families have been displaced for nearly 30 years and many of them face difficulties including food, shelter and basic services such as healthcare and education.

“They have suffered so much yet they remain gracious,” the Mirror quoted Angelina.

Brad Pitt and their children are waiting back in Berlin. Their kids have been putting pressure on him and Angelina Jolie to get married. It’s understandable though, especially with a mom like Angelina Jolie who travels so much doing UN and charity work.

To celebrate Angelina Jolie’s generosity, here is a slide show of incredible acts done for good will.
