Angelina Jolie continues goodwill tour with visit to children in Haiti
After last Thursday's PSA for World Refugee Day, Angelina Jolie continued her work as U.N. goodwill ambassador with a mission to Haiti over the weekend.
Outside Port-au-Prince, Jolie spent the night at an SOS Children's Village, an orphanage-alternative facility that focuses on long-term care for displaced families.
The actress brought toys and dined with the residents, preceded by a round table with Haitian President René Préval and various lawmakers to discuss protection policy for the nation's youngsters.
"I like to visit and support the SOS Children’s Villages in the world because I have seen that the children are growing up in a safe and loving environment," Jolie, who last visited in February, told organizers.
Next up for Jolie: to promote her political thriller "Salt," hitting theaters July 23.
