Angelina Jolie visits Pakistan to support people affected by cataclysmic floods

American actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie made a surprise visit to Pakistan on September 20 to support communities affected by the devastating floods in the country.

“Ms Jolie is visiting to witness and gain understanding of the situation, and to hear from people affected directly about their needs, and about steps to prevent such suffering in the future,” said the international aid organization International Rescue Committee (IRC).

During her visit, she will highlight the need for urgent support for the Pakistani people and long-term solutions to address the multiplying crises of climate change, human displacement, and protracted insecurity we are witnessing globally. 

The IRC said that the organization “hopes her visit will shed light on this issue and prompt the international community – particularly states contributing the most to carbon emissions – to act and provide urgent support to countries bearing the brunt of the climate crisis.

Jolie previously visited Pakistan in the wake of the 2005 earthquake and 2010 floods while trying to bring international attention to the aftermath of the two natural calamities to generate humanitarian and financial support for the country.
