Superstar Angelina Jolie made a surprise, two day visit to Afghanistan recently to meet with refugees. The actress took the trip as part of her real-life role as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissions for Refugees (UNHCR).

Many of the refugees Angelina met with had spent years in exile, the majority of which hadn’t been back to their home country since 2002. Angelina urged that more action be taken for the reintegration of Afghan exiles into their society, and according to the Agence France Presse stated, “The focus needs to be put now on reintegration and that means not just putting up shelter but making sure there is water, job opportunities, a school for the children and medical clinics.”

Angelina spoke with the head teacher of a local school outside of Kabul, as well as some schoolchildren, and is reportedly in talks to fund a new primary school for girls. Along with her various notable efforts included a plea for protection of the civilians fleeing Libya, urging “all sides” to respect human rights and do what they can to ensure the safety of these people.

Yeah… So, I took out the garbage today. That was pretty epic on my part.
