Damascus: United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Special Envoy Angelina Jolie met with Syrian refugees in Jordan, a report said on Sunday.

Angelina Jolie travelled to the Jordan – Syria border to meet Syrian refugees who had just crossed the border for safety.

Nearly half a million Syrians have been registered in neighbouring countries since the intensified fighting began.

Hundreds of thousands more 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.

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