Yemenis ‘Deserve Same Compassion’ as Ukrainian Refugees

The office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) announced on Sunday that its special envoy, actress Angelina Jolie, had arrived in the Yemeni port city of Aden “to help draw attention to the catastrophic consequences of the seven-year conflict on the people of Yemen.”

“She will be visiting Yemeni families, including displaced families and refugees, to hear directly from them how the conflict has ripped their lives apart,” the UNHCR statement said.

“As we continue to watch the horrors unfolding in Ukraine, and call for an immediate end to the conflict and humanitarian access, I’m here in Yemen to support people who also desperately need peace,” Jolie posted on her Instagram account on Sunday.
