Jolie returns to Ecuador and Haiti to mark World Refugee Day
Ecuador, June 17-18
Angelina Jolie headed to northern Ecuador to visit with Colombian families and schoolchildren in honor of June 20 World Refugee Day. It was Jolie’s first trip to the area since 2002. “I am so happy to be able to reconnect with some familiar faces, refugees I had met with during my 2002 trip,” she says. Jolie, a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, stopped by a daycare center (this page) and chatted with several women who told their tales of survival (opposite). For decades Ecuador has been a haven for Colombians fleeing violence, with more than 50,000 refugees currently documented in the country (the U.N. estimates that close to 135,000 are in need of protection).
