Calling Tragedy in Syria "Sickening," Angelina Jolie Calls for International Action
Lending her international celebrity to an international cause, Angelina Jolie is speaking out about the catastrophic conditions children in Syria are enduring, in hopes of bringing more attention to their plight.
Brad Pitt’s other half has released this statement: “What is happening to the children of Syria is sickening. Thousands of innocent young boys and girls have lost their lives in horrific circumstances, including in recent attacks near Damascus. And now one million Syrian children are struggling to survive as refugees in heart-breaking conditions.”
The 38-year-old actress and UNHCR Special Envoy goes on to state: “Each one of these child refugees is an innocent victim of a senseless conflict. These vulnerable children need shelter, food and assistance. But above all, they need security.”
The Oscar winner then urged, “The international community must not look away from Syria, they must renew the search for peace with urgency and determination.”
