Flooding: Angelina Jolie in Pakistan, Supports Climate Justice

Angelina Jolie was born Angelina Jolie Voight on June 4, 1975 in Los Angeles, California, USA. She is an American humanitarian, filmmaker, and actress. Jolie visited flood-affected villages during the recent disaster in Pakistan.

Over the course of her long and storied life and career, actress Angelina Jolie underwent a number of metamorphoses, going from Hollywood wild child to Academy Award winner to U.N. Goodwill Ambassador to acclaimed filmmaker. The daughter of Jon Voight, Jolie, who is stunningly attractive and incredibly gifted, received her first critical praise for the television film “Gia” (HBO, 1998). Jolie’s mother raised her as a Catholic but did not require her to go to church.

Jolie is a philanthropist and humanitarian as well, most known for her work as a Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Jolie has received a great deal of media attention throughout the years for her humanitarian work.

She flew thousands of miles and visited flood-affected villages during the recent disaster in Pakistan, where there were epidemics, no protocols, and no delectable food. She is deserving of standing ovations.

According to the most recent government statistics, Pakistan has been devastated by unheard-of monsoon rains that have flooded a third of the nation, an area the size of the United Kingdom, and killed close to 1,600 people.

More than seven million people have been forced to from their homes, and many of them are now living in improvised tents without mosquito nets and frequently without much access to clean drinking water or restrooms.

Jolie stated during her visit to Pakistan: “I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Jolie, who previously visited Pakistan to meet the victims of the devastating 2010 floods and a deadly 2005 earthquake, in footage released on Thursday.

“I am absolutely with you in pushing the international community to do more… I think this is a real wake-up call to the world about where we are at,” she told a meeting of civil and military officials in the capital Islamabad.

“The level of trauma and compound trauma is severe. Please learn and follow what is happening. Be aware of the climate catastrophe that we are seeing more regularly. Push governments to understand that lack of fair trade.”

“Climate change is not only real and it’s not only coming, it’s very much here.”

Jolie, who represents UNHCR, visited southern Sindh province, one of the worst-affected areas, where she met with displaced flood victims living in camps.

“I have been speaking to people and thinking that if enough aid doesn’t come, they won’t be here in the next few weeks, they won’t make it,” said Jolie.
