Hollywood actress ANGELINA JOLIE says that the exodus of millions of Venezuelans from their country has led to a “shocking” migrant crisis in South America that was “predictable and preventable.”
Jolie was ending a three-day visit to Peru as a special envoy for the United Nations refugee agency. During her visit Jolie met Venezuelan refugees who live at a shelter in the capital city and also went to a border crossing in the north of the country.
Jolie met with Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra to discuss potential solutions to the migrant crisis and ways of securing international support. “None of the Venezuelans I met want charity,” Jolie said. “They want an opportunity to help themselves.”
