Angelina Jolie has donated $100,000 to the United Nations to assist Syrian refugees.
The actress made the donation to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Wednesday, a date designated World Refugee Day by the international organization. Jolie also released astatement through the UN calling for “durable solutions for … refugees.”
“UNHCR believes even one person forced to flee is too many. And it’s true,” Jolie said in the statement. “Every individual refugee matters. Each has their own story. Each has suffered and survived more than I could ever bear. And yet, they rise up to live another day.”
She continued, “The international community should rededicate itself to preventing conflict, addressing it when it erupts, and solving it more quickly, for that is the only way to create durable solutions for the refugees whose strength inspires us on this World Refugee Day.”
