Angelina Jolie is visiting Ecuador to bring attention to Colombian refugees in honor of World Refugee Day. The violence and fighting that has been going on for decades between the FARC and the Colombian government has caused over a hundred thousand innocent people to flee the country. In addition to the refugees, many people do not know that Colombia is second only to the Darfur region of the Sudan with an estimated one million internally displaced people. Refugees are those who flee the country, while internally displaced people stay in the country but are forced to flee their homes.
Jolie had a chance to talk with one woman (her identity was protected for security reasons) about crossing the border and the violence she experienced in Colombia. Check out the video below:
