Angelina Jolie: Help people in Pakistan

Angelina Jolie is urging the world to remember the people in Pakistan.

The victims of the devastating floods are resilient but they need additional help, the actress and humanitarian told CNN"s Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta in an interview from Islamabad on Wednesday.

"They deserve dignity and assistance and we have to treat them with respect and try to preserve what we can of their livelihood and their future."

Jolie is in Pakistan as the personal envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres.

      Why aren't you there? A person can change and become a great individual.......SHE PUTS HER HEART AND MONEY INTO
      THE CAUSES SHE BELIEVES IN.....You should spend more time doing christian work instead of judging others.

      Talk no action...If one does what he/she think is right and that he/she can sleep soundness at nights. He/she has done something good without any doubts of others. There is always two sides of a story. Which side to choose is up to the individual. There is always gonna be problems and issues to deal with, no matter where the troubles are. We are all human being. Each of us has one heart. Please be nice to each other. The world will be a much better place to live in.

      Sky – you are an idiot and it's people like you who are absolutely killing this country. Killing it. Can you tell me what kind of attention you have brought to the suffering of other's in this world? Your bigotry says nothing about anyone but you. I am assuming you are American. I am ashamed to be in the same group as you. I believe they have many societies all over the globe who suppress women. Perhaps you should seek refuge there. Maybe get fitted for a burka.

    TREAT PEOPLE WITH DIGNITY , TREAT THEM WITH RESPECT, THESE ARE THINGS JOLIE DOES NOT STAND FOR,
    LOOK AT HER RECORD....IF WE WANT BLESSING FROM GOD WE GOT TO USE THOSE WHO RESPECT ALL PERSONS.
    YOU CAN PERFORM GREAT WORKS, BUT IN THE END JESUS CHRIST WILL SAY, I NEVER KNEW YOU............
    WE JUST GOT TO WAKE UP, WAKE UP......

    Let's try not to forget the people in the United States who are out of work. Out of money and out of hope. Let's not forget the fishermen and their families in the gulf. The ones who have committed suicide for fear of nowhere to turn and pure desperation. Angelina – you have the million$ – you take care of your "pets" while the rest of us here in the USA starve and live on the streets. New Orleans is still unbuilt after five years. Get real Angelina. Take a look at home..

      I am an adopted child and again, your ignorance is just amazing. All of her children has a father. I think you might be evil. Doesn't that come with so much hate?

    Our loving God is so wise when He tells us simply, "Do not judge." Yes, Angelina is a misguided soul when it comes to allowing her daughte Shiloh to represent something seriiously beyond her helpless understanding and yes it's sad that no one seems to form a team "reality" so that Shiloh can be gently led to be successful in her assinged gender, BUT Angelina Jolie is trying to do what is good and right. Not only does she talk, she walks the talk. I admire her for that and I pray for her parental areas of serious confusion.

    Some of the people watching this video are saying that she should help America. But don't you guys understand? What? Should we only care about America? Should everyone else suffer while we only help America? We should try and help everyone! Yes, America is in a tough time financially. But other countries have that too, and more.

      America should take care of it's own first, with anything left over to be divided among the needful nations or causes we vote on.

    And how many humanitarian aid workers have been murdered brutally for the crime of being from a well off country and thinking Pakastani's need help? And they wonder why we don't go there now. Same to be said for Somalia. . .
