Angelina Jolie's Visit to Libya She spends countless hours trying to help those in the most desperate need, and Angelina Jolie was busy paying a visit to Misrata, Libya on Tuesday.
The U.N. Goodwill Ambassador was photographed meeting patients at a local hospital while in the country to help agencies bringing aid to Libyans in Tripoli and Misrata. Of the effort, Jolie told press, “I have come to Libya for a variety of reasons, to see a country in transition at every level and to witness efforts to fully realize the promise of the Arab Spring."
“The country faces a host of challenges, including internally displaced people, refugees, rule of law, security, sanitation, education, health and other humanitarian needs. All of these pieces must be delivered and coordinated properly in an environment of reconciliation and justice,” she added.
The 36-year-old finished by saying, “I will be meeting with officials from all sides but above all, listening to the local people in the street. I am here to express solidarity with them. It is the work of rebuilding and recovery that will determine Libya’s future. (October 11)
