‘Do more,’ Angelina Jolie asks the international community to accomodate Pakistan more amidst climate crisis
Hollywood superstar and international humanitarian Angelina Jolie is currently in Pakistan. The actress is here to support flood-stricken communities and remarked that she hasn’t seen anything like this in her life.
A day after Jolie had visited the southern part of Sindh, she stated that she was ‘overwhelmed.’ She also added that she hasn’t, in her life, seen destruction on such a huge scale during her visit to the National Flood Response Coordination Center (NFRCC) in Islamabad.
The Hollywood star also promised that she would do her best in pushing the international community to do more. She focused on how numerous people are malnourished and in need of aid. ‘If enough aid doesn’t come immediately, they won’t be here in the next few weeks,’ Angelina added.
According to Jolie, this is a real wake-up call to the world about the realness of climate change and the present times.
Angelina Jolie visited areas impacted by the flash floods with the international aid organization International Rescue Committee (IRC). The purpose of her visit is to raise awareness.
The special envoy to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees has visited Pakistan many times before. In a statement, she revealed that she came here because of the ‘generosity’ that the Pakistanis have shown to people of Afghanistan. ‘Now this is the time we see the countries causing less damage to the environment are bearing the brunt of the disaster and pain and the death,’ she said further.
