She shares a letter from an Afghan girl
As a first entry, Angelina posted a handwritten letter from an Afghan girl who wrote about her fear of the Taliban. She received this letter from a teenager in Afghanistan, the actress wrote on Friday on the Internet platform.
The people there could no longer express themselves freely in social networks. She wants to help share the stories and voices of people fighting for their human rights on Instagram.
Jolie met refugees from Afghanistan years ago
Twenty years ago, before the 9/11 attacks, she met people fleeing the Taliban regime on the border with Afghanistan, wrote the Oscar winner. It is horrific to see so many refugees again. Jolie sharply criticized that Afghan refugees were being treated “like a burden”. You were among the most capable people in the world, explained the mother of six. She met many women and girls who wanted an education and fought for it.
Jolie urged her followers to support her in helping these people. The longtime ambassador of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) included a link to the organization in her post. (dpa / cch)
