In honor of World Refugee Day on Wednesday, Angelina Jolie donated $100,000 to the United Nations to aid refugees, particularly Syrians.

The Oscar-winning actress has been a UN goodwill ambassador since 2001 and has been personally active in boosting humanitarian efforts across the globe. Jolie was promoted to Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) earlier this year.

In a statement marking the occasion, Jolie said “UNHCR believes even one person forced to flee is too many. And it’s true. Every individual refugee matters. Each has their own story. Each has suffered and survived more than I could ever bear. And yet, they rise up to live another day…Unfortunately, the world is producing displaced people faster than it is producing solutions to displacement. And the solutions are not exclusively humanitarian – they are also political. The international community should rededicate itself to preventing conflict, addressing it when it erupts, and solving it more quickly for that is the only way to create durable solutions for the refugees whose strength inspires us on this World Refugee Day.”
