Angelina Jolie visits Pakistan, meets victims of the recent flood (Pictures)
Posted by Sarah Anne Hughes
Angelina Jolie appealed to the international community Tuesday to provide aid for the victims of Pakistan's recent flood during her visit to the country. The 35-year-old actress and "goodwill ambassador" for the U.N.'s refugee agency met with victims and said, "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." The flood, Pakistan's worst natural disaster, killed more than 1,700 people.
The actress wore a black robe and head scarf, similar to the kind of clothing conservative Muslim women wear, according to the Associated Press.
This is not the first time one half of Brangelina has been involved in flood-related relief efforts. Partner Brad Pitt has been heavily involved in the rebuilding of New Orleans since the city was devastated by Hurricane Katrina. His Make It Right Foundation rebuilds green, affordable homes in the Lower Ninth Ward.
