Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie on Monday visited Catholic-Church-run Santa Ana shelter for Venezuelan immigrants in Peru's northern Tumbes region.
Although the well-known actress and director has not made any statements to the press, she has talked with Venezuelan citizens in order to know about their situation.
She arrived in the Peruvian capital's working-class San Juan de Lurigancho district to visit the Sin Fronteras (Without Borders) shelter
, which opened more than a year ago to provide lodging and food for Venezuelans fleeing the economic crisis in their homeland.
Following up on the UNHCR's recent visit to the region, Jolie is undertaking a three-day mission to assess the humanitarian needs of Venezuelan refugees and the challenges facing Peru as a host country,
and to discuss the possible regional responses to the crisis
The Inca country has received over 450,000 Venezuelans in the past 18 months, second only to Colombia in the number of refugees it has admitted from Venezuela.
