Angelina Jolie's 3rd visit to Iraq

Since 2001, well acclaimed actress Angelina Jolie has joined United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in helping refugees in over 20 countries. Jolie was on a one-day mission to Iraq on July 23, 2009 to bring attention the predicament of displaced people in the region. She visited a makeshift settlement in the Chikook suburb of north-west Baghdad.
The people there are complaining about the medical treatment for different ailments and the kids are currently not studying. UNHCR was the only one helping them.
Jolie said, "This is a moment where things seem to be improving on the ground, but Iraqis need a lot of support and help to rebuild their lives."
