Thanks to Angelina for bringing attention and highlighting the needs and the plight of the people in Pakistan affected by the flood in year 2010. She was a true citizen of the world; the compassionate heart knows no borders. She could have stayed at home and raise funds but she chose to go there to experience the devastation and desperation those unfortunate people experience and thus she brought the world’s attention to these folks.
Her humanitarian work around the world is praiseworthy, the United Nations asked her to go to Pakistan to bring attention to what is happening. She amazed me with her tireless and unrelenting support to those in need. No matter where she is or what she is doing, she never fails to respond to the needs of others or those in trouble. While at the a camp in Nowshera, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, the 35-year-old UNHCR goodwill ambassador shared, “I am very moved by them and I hope that I am able to, today and tomorrow, be able to do something to help bring attention to the situation for all of the people in need in Pakistan.”
Angelina Jolie during her visit was touched by meeting ordinary Pakistanis but her meetings with political elites were awful, to say the least. Unfortunately, these politicians do not reflect the hospitable and generous nature of Pakistani people. We shall have enlightened rulers who ache and care for those that they govern, it was shocking for Jolie to learn that her personal cash donation of $100,000 was more than any Pakistani politician has given to his or her own people.
She has done a great job as UNHCR Ambassador of Goodwill, She was so brave, some people would be afraid of being killed but she wasn’t. It would be impossible to describe this woman’s personality with one word. Angelina is a real hero and the best example of care and contribution for the needy ones.
She is a true celebrity, not only by her beauty and successful career, but for the role she has been playing in the life of people with the most needs. She really understands what it means not to offend others; she was wearing what women wear in Pakistan so as not to offend their religious sensibilities. It’s called respecting the customs of the country you’re visiting. If you’re a woman visiting rural areas of Pakistan, you respect their customs and cover your head; I appreciate the respect she has for other people’s culture in Pakistan.
