STORYLINE
UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie travelled to the Jordan-Syria border overnight to meet frightened and exhausted Syrian refugees who had just completed the perilous crossing to safety in Jordan.

SOUNDUP (English) Angelina Jolie, Actor and Special Envoy for the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR):
“Salam. Please sit down. I come to you. Hello, hello.”


This family moved from Damascus to their home town of Daraa four months ago. They hoped that the situation would improve, but finally it was too much.

The mother says they had no choice but to flee. There was no electricity, no water, no food and most of all no safety.

Tears fill the youngest daughter’s eyes as her mother talks of their ordeals.

SOUNDUP (English) Angelina Jolie, Actor and Special Envoy for the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR):
“Bye sweetie, it’s going to be ok.”

This family is joining tens of thousands of others who have already fled to Jordan and surrounding country.

Today (6 December) Jolie returned to the camp to meet more refugees and the family she talked to before.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic with English interpretation) Woman refugee:
“When the bombing got really fierce and hard and non-stopping, they use to hide in the holes under the ground. Even with the children, because it is safe, especially at night, so when the weather got bad and raining started to take place, all of these holes under the ground were flooded with water, so it wasn’t suitable. Also they didn’t have enough bread in the bakery and it was also another reason that they started to suffer shortage of food, so because of the weather conditions, because of the rain they were not able to stay in those sheltered areas”.


She also saw how efforts have been made to help the refugees deal with the winter condition.

SOUNDUP (Arabic with English interpretation) Teenage refugee and UNHCR representative:
“I told him indeed if you have chance to go to school, you should.”

SOUNDUP (English) Angelina Jolie:
“We need him as a future of Syria.”

Nearly half a million Syrians fleeing intensified fighting have been registered in neighbouring countries since the conflict began. Hundreds of thousands more are unregistered, but are expected to come forward for help in the next few months as their resources are depleted.

Since the UNHCR special envoy’s last visit in September, the number of registered Syrian refugees in the region has increased by more than 200,000 and in Jordan alone by nearly 50,000. The sprawling Za’atri refugee camp north of Amman has doubled in size.

Angelina Jolie and her partner, Brad Pitt, made a donation of US$50,000 Thursday afternoon for the purchase of family tents for refugees.
