This lady does so much in such limited time.
Angelina Jolie was recently spotted attending the BAFTAs with Brad Pitt, but she hasn't forgotten her responsibilities as a UNHCR Special Envoy.
A week or so after making her rounds at the awards show the starlet flew to Lebanon where she visited a Syrian Refugee Settlement. Angelina spent three days with some of the 3,500 orphaned and displaced children at the camp. The location of the camp is in the eastern Bekaa Valley of Lebanon, and Angelina Jolie called the time she spent there "heart-rending".
The particular photo (above) was taken this past Sunday on February 23rd.
In a statement she said:

We are SO glad the UN just happened to be there!
We can't imagine what would've happened had this little boy — 4-year-old Marwan — not run into the staff stationed in Jordan!
It was Hala Gorani, a reporter and anchor for CNN International, who Tweeted the amazing photo of Marwan approaching the UN staff after being separated from

Eddie Izzard is known for being one of the funniest comedians, not only in England, but in the world!
Just because he knows how to tickle some funny bones - that doesn't mean life is all giggles for him!
He proved that point when he went to Syria to meet with some of the child refugees over there, and what he found was just heartbreaking!
We cannot believe the squalid conditions these CHILDREN are forced to survive through, and it's just awful that these kids have been put in such a desperate situation!
We're glad to see this man bring awareness to a place that so desperately needs it.

Angelina Jolie is more than one of the biggest movie stars in the world. She's also a citizen of the world.
As the United Nations' Special Envoy, Angelina traveled to Lebanon on Wednesday. She met with government officials, Syrian refugees, and their nationless children.
The mother of six spoke to several families who, fearful of being killed in the crossfire of a bloody civil war, had left their men behind in order to cross the border from Syria safely. She said:
"I was moved to meet Syrian families in homes where they are welcomed and protected… They lost so much."
Angelina and the U.N.'s High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres praised the Lebanese government for granting asylum to the fleeing Syrians and called on other countries to do the same.
We are so proud of Angie's efforts. And we can only hope that one day the children of Syria grow up knowing only peace.
