October 23, 2018 at 04:20 GMT +00:00 · Published

Hollywood actress and UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie visited Venezuelan migrants and refugees who are staying in Tumbes, on the border between Peru and Ecuador on Monday.

Jolie can be seen making her way between a hostel, the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, the migrant centres, and finally back to the airport where she took a flight to Lima.

Jolie is in Peru as part a three-day visit to assess the humanitarian needs of Venezuelan refugees, and the strains placed on Peru, which is hosting them. Some 2.3 million Venezuelans have fled their homeland since 2014 in search of a better life as the economic crisis grips the oil-rich nation.
