Jolie spoke about children affected by the war
The famous American actress Angelina Jolie, who visited Ukraine, also cheers for Ukrainian children.
This war is a child rights crisis. Children bear the brunt of war, the actress wrote powerfully.
“Joint efforts to overcome physical and emotional trauma must meet the needs not only of the children of Ukraine, but also of Afghanistan, Yemen and many other forgotten conflicts that are not funded enough to cover the needs of children,” Angelina Jolie emphasized.
She added that local organizations are doing everything possible to provide babies with the food and education they need to grow. However, the Hollywood star called on the world for even more humanitarian assistance so that a generation of children would have the resources for treatment.
