Angelina Jolie opens up about her visits to camps for Syrian and Iraqi refugees in an op-ed for The New York Times.
She writes, "I have visited Iraq five times since 2007, and I have seen nothing like the suffering I'm witnessing now."
"For many years I have visited camps, and every time, I sit in a tent and hear stories. I try my best to give support," she continues. "To say something that will show solidarity and give some kind of thoughtful guidance. On this trip I was speechless."
She further writes, "Nothing prepares you for the reality of so much individual human misery: for the stories of suffering and death, and the gaze of hungry, traumatized children."
