International humanitarian and Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie reached flood-hit Dadu in Paksitan’s Sindh province on Tuesday and met with affectees, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The Hollywood actress travelled to Dadu in a helicopter where on the ground she was escorted by heavy security.

The actress also used a boat to witness and gain understanding of the destruction unleashed by the devastating floods.

She also heard from the women affected directly about their needs, and about steps to prevent such suffering in the future. 

Ms Jolie, who previously visited victims of the 2010 floods in Pakistan, and the 2005 earthquake, will visit the IRC’s emergency response operations and local organisations assisting displaced people including Afghan refugees.  

Pakistan, which has contributed just 1% of global carbon emissions, is also the second largest host of refugees globally, its people having sheltered Afghan refugees for over forty years. 

Ms Jolie will highlight the need for urgent support for the Pakistani people and long-term solutions to address the multiplying crises of climate change, human displacement and protracted insecurity we are witnessing globally.
