Angelina Jolie is giving back to the refugees in Bangladesh.
As part of her work with the United Nations, the Oscar-winning actress, 43, spent three days in the world’s largest refugee settlement, home to hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims in Bangladesh.
According to the UN refugee agency UNHCR, Jolie was there to go over the needs of the refugees and the “critical challenges” the country faces to house them.
During her visit, Jolie spent time at the school and hospital while meeting Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and the foreign minister, AK Abdul Momen.
In a statement about her time in Bangladesh the UNHCR said: “Jolie is undertaking a three-day mission to assess the humanitarian needs of the Rohingya refugees and some of the more critical challenges facing Bangladesh as a host country.”
While this is her first stop in Bangladesh, the “Salt” star met Rohingya refugees in Myanmar back in 2015 and in India in 2006.
RRRC commissioner Abul Kalam said: “(Jolie) will definitely have a message to take back from here. We hope that the humanitarian community understands the kind of crisis the Rohingya are in through her.”
