While still on the promotional tour for The Tourist, Angelina Jolie paid a visit to the staff at UNHCR, an important refugee agency, that celebrated its 60th anniversary today.

Her stay in Madrid was brief, but she did offer this thanks to the hard-working people at the agency. She said:

“In the week of UNHCR’s anniversary, I would like to highlight the strength and courage of the world’s refugees and [other] forcibly displaced people who are, for all of us, an example of generosity and dignity. My thoughts go also to the dedicated UNHCR staff, who for many years have risked their lives to protect the lives of refugees.”

We just so admire how she is involved with so many different wonderful and important organizations around the world. Truly inspiring!
