Angelina Jolie: Two-thirds of Ukrainian children left their homes because of the war

Hollywood actress and UN Goodwill Ambassador for Refugees Angelina Jolie called on the whole world more actively help Ukrainian children who became victims of the war. Jolie wrote about this on Instagram.

Angelina Jolie pointed out that already 2/3 of the children from Ukraine were forcibly displaced. The star noted that since the beginning of the full-scale war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine on February 24, at least 277 children have been killed and 456 injured.

Jolie also told subscribers that in Ukraine, at least 256 healthcare facilities and more than 1,800 schools were damaged and destroyed as a result of attacks.

In her post, Angelina Jolie also noted that children bear the greatest consequences of the war. Globally, children make up 30% of the population, but also make up 41% of all internally displaced people:

– A common effort to overcome the physical and emotional manifestations of trauma must meet not only the needs of children in Ukraine, but also Afghanistan, Yemen and many other often forgotten conflicts, which are funded far below the level sufficient to meet the needs of children. Local and community-led organizations are pioneering new ways to connect children to tools for learning and nutrition for growth to help protect them from the worst effects of this war, but the global humanitarian response can and must be stronger to provide this generation of children with the resources they need. to start treatment,” Jolie emphasized.

Angelina Jolie flew to Ukraine on April 30 not as a UN Goodwill Ambassador, but on her own initiative. She visited the local cafe “Lviv croissants”, the railway station and boarding school. She had to run for cover during the alarm. The next day, Jolie visited the Harmony training and rehabilitation center and brought gifts for the children.
