Well played Angelina.
Actress Angelina Jolie arrived at Lancaster House before attending the G8 Foreign Ministers’ conference this morning (April 11, 2013) in London, England.
G8 Foreign Ministers are holding a two day meeting where they will discuss the situation in the Middle East; including Syria and Iran, security and stability across North and West Africa, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and climate change.
Jolie brought her celebrity wattage to London on Thursday to back an urgent cause: fighting sexual violence in military conflicts.
The Hollywood star joined British Foreign Secretary William Hague in announcing $36 million in additional funding from G-8 nations to go toward a series of measures for preventing sexual violence and ensuring justice for its survivors.
For too long, Jolie said, survivors of sexual violence have been “the forgotten victims” of wars in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere.
“Today, I believe that their voices have been heard.”
Making the most of her celebrity for the good of others. Nice going Jolie!
