Angelina Jolie marks World Refugee Day with Thailand trip

Angelina Jolie raised awareness for World Refugee Day on Friday (20Jun14) by visiting a camp in Thailand.

The Tomb Raider star jetted into the country with her children on Friday to fulfill her commitments as a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).


She headed to the Ban Mai Nai Soi camp to talk with those living there, including many who had fled neighboring country Burma.


Jolie was named an honorary dame by England's Queen Elizabeth II in the Birthday Honors List this month (Jun14) for her humanitarian work.
