Hollywood star Angelina Jolie has handed 100,000 dollars to help refugees from Pakistan’s floods, it has emerged.
A UNHCR source attending the gala screening of Jolie’s film “Salt” in Paris, said she had donated the sum of $100,000(78000 euros) to help relieve Pakistan, where aid has been short and slow in coming.
A crowd of 1,000 fans engulfed the 34-year-old actress, who is also a goodwill ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, when she stepped out of a limousine Tuesday evening clad in a short shiny number with plunging neckline for the French premiere of the movie.
“I’m doing what I can. I’m talking to Ambassador Richard Holbrook, the UN and people on the ground about how we can spend our money,” she told reporters earlier in London during a promotional event.
Jolie, who attended the premiere of Salt with Brad Pitt, added: “It’s unravelling every minute, it seems to be getting worse so we’re trying to keep track of it.”
