Angelina Jolie, a well-known humanitarian and Hollywood star, will travel to South Asia to observe the relief efforts and express her support for the victims.
According to reports in the local media, UN Special Envoy Angelina is scheduled to visit Pakistan soon to witness the devastation brought on by the country’s extreme monsoon rains and flooding.
The Wanted actress has not posted any updates on social media, despite reports citing sources saying she applied for a visa to travel to Pakistan, where more than 30 million people have been displaced and up to $40 billion in damage has been caused by unprecedented floods.
The 47-year-old has traveled there multiple times since taking on the role of goodwill ambassador for the UN agency for refugees, so she is not unfamiliar with the nation with the second-largest Muslim population.
She last traveled to Pakistan in 2010, after the devastating floods that had ravaged much of the nation. She had previously made three trips across the nation to draw attention to the precarious situation of Afghan refugees residing in Pakistan.
Recently, members of the US Congress also traveled to Pakistan’s flood-affected areas. While visiting the nation, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres made a similar plea for strong international assistance.
