During her visit to the National Flood Response Coordination Centre (NFRCC) late Wednesday, Jolie said that she has never seen anything like this disaster before.
“Many times, I came here because of the generosity that Pakistani people have shown to the people of Afghanistan over the years as a host country. Now this time we see the countries causing less damage to the environment are bearing the brunt of the disaster and the pain and the death,” Jolie said while speaking at the NFRCC.
She arrived in Pakistan on Tuesday to help people impacted by the devastating floods and visited different areas to meet the affected families.
“I am absolutely with you in pushing the international community to do more,” she added.
