Angelina Jolie went to Pakistan this summer to help those that have been harmed by the terrible flooding that has been affecting the country.
Last Friday, U.N. Ambassador to Pakistan Angelina Jolie landed at the airport as she departed for the flood-hit country with her crew of UN workers to provide aid and support to those affected. Jolie was captured in a video as she arrived at an airport in Karachi, Pakistan where over 692 people have died due to the flooding that’s been going on for the past few weeks.
While images and videos of Mia Farrow and other members of The Eternals can be seen circulating online, the actress who has been Special Envoy to the United Nations for Refugees since 2011 is shown meeting victims of the wildfires. In addition, she reportedly visited Dadu, a district where waterborne diseases have caused nearly 300 deaths since July. As a humanitarian, the actress has won praise from her fans.
Not only is this not the first time that this actress has flown to Pakistan, but it is also not the first time that she’s offered her support in times of natural disasters. Prior to this visit, she also visited the country in 2010 when it was hit by floods and in 2005 when it was hit by an earthquake. According to the International Rescue Committee, Jolie is visiting Pakistan to support flood-affected communities and assist in their recovery.

Angelina’s visit to Pakistan follows Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif’s visit to the UN General Assembly for its 77th session in New York. The content of Sharif’s speech will be about the devastating impact of floods in the country caused by climate change. It has been reported that the country’s economy has suffered USD 30 billion in damages as a result of the devastating floods.
