Jolie has accepted an award for her humanitarian work as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations refugee agency
There were 700 diplomats and VIP guests attending dinner Tuesday, during which actress Angelina Jolie was handed the Global Humanitarian Award from the United Nations Association of the U.S.A. At that time Jolie claimed her humanitarian work as "the greatest thing in my life" aside from her two children.
Moreover, she also revealed her hope to live up to the promise she made to herself when she became a goodwill ambassador four years ago for the office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees to do everything possible to help refugees all over the world because "they deserve every bit of our effort."
Jolie says "the U.N. is the closest thing to fighting for justice. I feel very, very privileged to be a very small part of it."
