Angelina Jolie Visits Haitian Refugees
The actress was in the Dominican Republic yesterday to visit with Haitian children and the nation’s President, Leonel Fernandez.
Angelina Jolie never stays in one place for too long. On Sunday, she was in Miami with Brad Pitt to watch the Super Bowl and canoodle with him in the stands. On Monday, she was in the Dominican Republic, and reports claim she is traveling to Port-au-Prince in Haiti today.
While in the Dominican Republic, the actress and goodwill ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and UNICEF visited injured Haitian children in the pediatric wing of Dario Contreras Hospital in Santa Domingo. She was accompanied by the hospital’s director, Hector Quezada, as well as Gonzalo Vargas Llosa (who’s father is the famous writer, Mario Vargas Llosa).
Later on in her visit, Angelina went to the National Palace to sit down with the Dominican Republic’s President, Leonel Fernandez. We assume they discussed how the nation is trying to help their neighbor, Haiti, as it recovers from the devestating 7.0 earthquake that took 200,000 lives.
After she and Brad donated $1 million, Angelina Jolie has definitely done her part to lend a helping hand to the earthquake victims. But, for Angelina, we’re sure money isn’t enough. (Radar Online)
