Washington, (ANI): Angelina Jolie recently visited a refugee settlement camp in Africa. As United Nations Goodwill Ambassador she spent a day at the Dadaab Refugee camp on the Kenyan border. The beauty was appalled to see the conditions of 285,000 refugees living in a camp, which was initially made for just 90,000 people.

Somali people, who have fled into Kenya because of atrocities in their country, live in the camp. The 'Gia' star wants to bring world's attention to the plight of the refugees. "If this is the better solution, then what must it be like in Somalia? The toilets are already overflowing. There is not even enough space for trash dumps so people are living amongst the garbage," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

"What is amazing is that as more and more people come into the camp, the Somali families continue to be generous with what little they have, even if that means having one eighth of the water they need and their children suffering from dehydration," she added. The beauty met some families in the camp too. She said: "The Somali families I met today are full of warmth and affection. I wish more people could meet them because then they would have a stronger desire to help."
