Human Rights Advocates Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Support SOS Childrens Villages

SOS Children's Villages, the world's largest charity for orphaned and abandoned children, welcomed Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to its Village in Amman, Jordan. The October visit was a result of an invitation from Her Majesty Queen Noor, Honorary President of SOS Children's Villages - Jordan.

After spending time with SOS children and mothers in Amman, Jolie enthusiastically spoke of the SOS family-based model of care: "The SOS model of providing care for children without parental care is one of the best, as they are still in a family setting within their own country," Jolie said. "We hope more people learn about their programs and give them support."

SOS operates in 132 countries with three SOS Children's Villages in Jordan. SOS Jordan includes 20 family homes where orphaned children grow up in a nurturing environment with an SOS mother, brothers and sisters. Ms. Jolie first visited the Amman, Jordan Village in 2003 when she committed to financially covering the costs of one family home.
