Angelina Jolie's Stand For Colombian Refugees

Angie is at it again. The actress and global do-gooder has called on the Ecuadorian government to continue its tradition of helping those in need. On her recent visit to the Colombian refugees in Ecuador, Jolie urged for an open asylum policy. (See why we love her?) “As the 30th anniversary of the 1984 Cartagena Declaration nears, it is time to celebrate the resilience of the displaced people in the region and renew our commitment to laws and policies that offer them protection, safety and a chance for a dignified life," stated Jolie. The Cartagena Declaration on Refugees is a non-binding agreement that based its principals on the “commitments with regards to refugees.” It essentially broadened the refugee definition and provided a new approach to their protection. (Totes amazing.) Ecuador currently hosts 56,000 refugees and 21,000 asylum-seekers. Also 1,300 new applicants monthly seek protection from the violence in Colombia. “These young people are so impressive,” said Jolie, a Special Envoy for the UNHCR, about the young Columbian refugees and Ecuadoreans doing good despite their many hardships. “ I was really moved by their determination to improve their community and take it into their own hands."
