Angelina Jolie Visits Refugee Centers, Calls For Aid in Malta

by at . Comments

Residents of Malta have say Brangelina is nice. That's putting it mildly.

As Brad Pitt shoots his new film in the southern European country, his partner, UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie, has been making an even greater impact with various humanitarian visits in the region.

Having met with Syrian refugees in Turkey last week, Jolie visited two centers housing asylum-seekers in Malta and on the island of Lampedusa.

Here's a video of Angelina in action:

Over 1,500 refugees have fled the violence from war-embattled Libya to Malta (via overcrowded boats) this year, with lives being lost in transit.

"Malta has saved many lives, but it is the daily conditions on the ground that are of most concern," Angelina said in Malta on Sunday morning.

"We have spent time today speaking with the government and will spend more talking about how, together, we can make conditions more humane."

"We've spoken about our shared concerns about making sure asylum claims are processed as quickly as possible so no-one is sitting in a prison-like situation and waiting on a decision about their status," the actress added.
