Angelina Jolie: Ecuador Revisited

Although it appears that Angelina Jolie visited the refugees in Ecuador only to trick them with fake looking $1 cheeseburgers from Mcdonalds...Angelina was really there visiting a daycare facility run by the Women’s Federation of Sucumbíos, a province located in northern Ecuador just yesterday.

"It’s been eight years since I was last here and UNHCR’s presence has grown considerably,” the 35-year-old UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador shared. “They are going into the thickest parts of the jungle to reach the refugees, who are living in very remote locations and in desperate conditions."

"I wanted to come back and meet with vulnerable people and focus on violence against women and unaccompanied minors,” Angie added. “I am so happy to be able to reconnect with some familiar faces, refugees I had met with during my 2002 trip."
