Jolie made her fourth trip to the Jordan refugee camp days before the UN General Assembly session.

Hollywood star Angelina Jolie took a personal approach as she addressed the Syrian crisis during her recent visit to a refugee camp in Jordan. The 41-year-old actress referenced her own children when she spoke about the "harsh" conditions under which the Syrian refugees are living at the Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan.

Speaking to the press on Friday (9 September) Jolie said, "There are children here who remember no other life than this harsh, desert environment and barbed wire fences. There are teens here, who bear terrible mental and physical wounds of the conflict."

As she continued with her moving address, the Mr And Mrs Smith actress went on to imagine her own children living in such "harsh conditions". "Over half of all the refugees in Jordan are under 18. My own children are of that age. And like any other parent, it is impossible for me to imagine what it would be like for my own children in this situation. And it breaks my heart," she said.

Jolie, who shares six children – Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 – along with husband Brad Pitt made her fourth trip to Jordan that hosts more than 600,000 refugees affected by the ongoing civil war in Syria, according to the United Nations.
