UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie visits Ecuador

Angelina Jolie, in Ecuador this past weekend, on her first field visit as the new Special Envoy of UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres.

In her previous role as a UN refugee agency Goodwill Ambassador, Jolie has conducted more than 40 field visits over the last decade. This is her third time in Ecuador - home to the largest refugee population in Latin America.

Ecuador currently hosts some 56,000 refugees and 21,000 asylum-seekers. It continues to receive 1,300 new applications for refugee status each month from people fleeing Colombia. Many live in remote and poor areas of the country close to the Colombian border.

More than a week after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador killing nearly 600 people, thousands of Ecuadorans and many Colombian refugees remain homeless. UNHCR is distributing 900 tents and other aid in the hardest-hit areas like Chamanga, a Pacific-coast town where the half the population lost their homes.
