Angelina Jolie Aids Yemen Refugees Amid Ukraine Crisis

“We cannot be selective about who deserves support and whose rights we defend.”

Angelina Jolie has landed in Yemen to assist refugees amid the Russia-Ukraine conflict. The actor is currently working with the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to provide relief for those affected by the crisis.

Jolie took to her Instagram to announce her arrival, saying: “As we continue to watch the horrors unfolding in Ukraine, I’m here in Yemen to support people who also desperately need peace. The situation here is one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world, with one civilian killed or injured every hour in 2022.” She continued: “Over 20 million Yemenis [depend] on humanitarian assistance to survive.”

In addition, Jolie urged her followers to pay attention to both conflicts and lend some compassion to victims affected by the ordeal. “We cannot be selective about who deserves support and whose rights we defend. The lives of civilians everywhere are of equal value. After seven years of war, the people of Yemen also need protection, support, and above all, peace,” she shared.

Yemen has been embroiled in a civil war since 2014. The country is currently run by the Supreme Political Council’s Houthi movement and the Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi-led Yemeni government, which has resulted in famine and deaths. The region has also faced bombing attacks by Saudi Arabia.
