Her movies may be awful (I’m looking at you “The Tourist” and “SALT”), but Angelina Jolie is a force for good in this world – and on top of some recent huge donations ($500K for tornado victims, $10M to charity), we’ve got this new PSA for World Refugee Day on June 20th.

The actress, who is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations’s High Commission on Refugees, has punched out spots before, but the importance of the issue bears constant repeating. As you would expect, she’s not one to simply address the crisis from behind a camera. It was announced today that Turkish officials have granted Jolie permission to visit refugees who have fled from Syria to escape violent uprisings.

The 36-year-old will reportedly land in the country and Friday and visit refugee camps in Southern Turkey. Check out her new PSA after the jump below.
