Angelina Jolie Steps Down as UNHCR Ambassador

Oscar-winning US actress Angelina Jolie says she is stepping down from her role as an ambassador for the UN refugee agency UNHCR after more than 20 years.

In a post on instagram Jolie said I believe in many things the UN does, particularly the lives it saves through emergency relief.

She said she would henceforth be working now with organisations led by people most directly affected by conflict that give the greatest voice to them.

In a statement, the refugee agency said “Jolie has worked tirelessly, carrying out more than 60 field missions to bear witness to stories of suffering as well as hope and resilience.

“And that she was one of the most influential refugee rights advocates.”
