Pakistani media outlet Express Tribune reported this information in a report on Wednesday.
According to an Express Tribune report, the Hollywood A-lister visited several flood-affected areas in Pakistan’s Sindh province on Tuesday. It also includes Dadu district. Dadu district is one of the worst affected districts in the ongoing floods. There he heard directly from flood-affected people about their needs and steps to prevent such suffering in the future.
An International Rescue Committee (IRC) statement said Angelina Jolie, as an international human rights activist, is visiting Pakistan to help people affected by the devastating floods. He is visiting Pakistan primarily to witness the flood situation first hand and hear the needs of the affected people first hand and to learn about possible steps to prevent such sufferings in the future.
The statement released by the IRC also said that Angelina Jolie had previously visited Pakistan to visit the victims of the 2010 floods and the 2005 earthquake. During the visit, he will also visit IRC emergency operations and local organizations assisting displaced people, including Afghan refugees. Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie will highlight the need for urgent help for them.
According to the IRC, Joly will be the first to see how countries like Pakistan are paying the highest price for a crisis they did not cause.
The IRC also highlighted, the organization hopes that Jolie’s visit will shed light on the issue and spur the international community to act and provide urgent assistance, especially to countries affected by the climate crisis – which contribute the most to carbon emissions.
