Subscribe to Angelina Jolie alerts

Angelina Jolie met with the president of Lebanon on Wednesday (12Sep12) to discuss the challenges of providing shelter for refugees who have fled violence in war-torn Syria.
The actress, a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations (U.N.), is currently in the Middle East to draw attention to the plight of the families who have escaped Syria during 18 months of bloody fighting between rebels and government forces.
After a stop in Jordan on Tuesday (11Sep12), she visited Lebanon to hold talks with top officials including President Michel Suleiman and Prime Minister Najib Mikati about the 67,000 registered refugees in the country.
Jolie also toured the Bar Elias School, where the U.N. provides psychological support for refugee children, and headed to the Bekaa Valley to meet some of the survivors living with host families near the Lebanon-Syria border.
She says, "I was moved to meet Syrian families… in homes where they are welcomed and protected."
