United Nations's goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie visits refugee camp at Turkey's border with Syria. "Angel of Goodness" brings toys for children.
Angelina Jolie, actress, philanthropist, and UN's goodwill ambassador, flew from Malta to southern Turkey today to visit one of the camps set up for Syrian refugees at the country's border with Syria. She brought with her a van load of toys for children.
Jolie was met by a crowd of thousands that turned up to greet her with a sign that read "Welcome Angel of Goodness." 320 police officers were assigned for her protection. The star of "Salt" was as mysterious and alluring as ever in her black outfit.
Jolie is known for her generous philanthropy for the Third World and adopting children from trouble spots.
The actress greeted the refugees in Arabic, distributed food, drinks and toys to the children and commiserated with them for two and a half hours.
The French daily Le Figaro visited the refugee camps and reported 3 days ago that all is well for the eight thousand plus refugees in the camps.
The French daily Le Monde has been reporting on a large number of Syrian army defections, which may indicate that Syria may be on the verge of becoming another Libya.
