Angelina Jolie and her daughters Zahara and Shiloh visited the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan on Sunday.

According to the United Nations Refugee Agency, the UN special envoy and actress said, “My daughters Zahara and Shiloh asked to come with me today. They’ve spent time today speaking and playing with children their own age who have been forced from their homes, whose family members have been killed or have disappeared, and who are struggling with trauma and illness, but who at the end of the day are just children, with the same hopes and rights as children in any other nation.” 

USMagazine.com reported that Jolie gave a powerful speech where she called on world powers to “find a viable political settlement” to end Syria’s civil war.

While this was Zahara’s first humanitarian trip, Shiloh had accompanied her mother to Turkey to honour World Refugee Day.
