“I’ve never seen anything like this. I have, as you mentioned, been to Pakistan many times, I came first because of the the generosity the Pakistani people have shown the people of Afghanistan over the years and as a host country. It’s often the countries that don’t have as much that give so much more than many other countries and now, at this time, we see it’s the countries that cause less damage to the environment that are now bearing the brunt of the disaster and the pain and the death,” she said at the meeting.
Jolie previously visited Pakistan in 2010 and 2005 to meet victims of the earthquakes. She is currently visiting as part of the the International Rescue Committee’s (IRC) emergency response operations.
