And it seems Angelina Jolie has instilled her unwavering desire to help those in need onto her own family as daughters Shiloh, 11, and Zahara, 13, joined their mother during a tour of the Zataari refugee camp in Jordan on Sunday.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said his organization has the "responsibility to be a leading protector of women's rights" and described crimes against women in conflict zones as a method of "political control, terrorism and ethnic cleansing". Dressed in a black off-the-shoulder sheath dress, a matching capelet, and classic pumps (also black), the UN Special Envoy also received briefings from NATO's gender advisers in Afghanistan and Kosovo.

Angelina Jolie, one of the most iconic Hollywood celebrities, has recently made a visit to Jordan along with her two daughters in an effort to reach out to Syrian refugees.

"It can not be built on impunity for the targeting of civilians by all sides of the conflict, the bombing of schools and hospitals, barrel bombs, torture, chemical weapons and rape used as a weapon of war".

Her remarks followed a report by Human Rights Watch that alleged systematic rape against women and girls was a widespread feature of the Myanmar military's campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Muslim minority. "There is finally hope that we can change this".

Former Norwegian prime minister Stoltenberg said it was an "honor" to have Jolie involved.

Keep up the good work, Angie!

After nearly seven years of war, more than 6 million people have been displaced inside Syria and a further 5.48 million have fled to other countries, seeking shelter.

'They really are an example to the world, at a time when solidarity with refugees is in short supply.

In what has become the biggest refugee crisis since the end of World War II, "most Syrian refugees have exhausted any savings they had", Jolie told press at the camp.

"This is the reality of those displaced by the conflict in Syria", she added.

"We should never forget that the war began with demands by Syrians for greater human rights".

Jordan hosts more than 650,000 registered Syrian refugees, according to the United Nations refugee agency.
