    Angelina Jolie's Humanitarian Trip to Afghanistan

    Angelina Jolie has had a whirlwind travel schedule these past few weeks. The actress surprised Clint Eastwood with an award at the Hollywood Film Festival Awards Gala earlier this week, and prior to the ceremony, Angelina was in Afghanistan.

    Angelina visited the war-torn nation as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Refugee Agency where she met with refugees who had recently returned to their homes, People reported.

    The actress also met with Afghan Hands, an organization which helps women and child in the region.

    “After seeing real suffering,” the mother of six told the mag, “you never complain anymore.”

    And when she returned home, what was the first thing the actress did?

    “Hug the kids,” she said.

    During a recent interview with Matt Lauer on NBC’s “Today” show, the actress said she and Brad Pitt are considering adopting another child.

    “Soon?” Matt asked Angelina during their interview as she nodded, confirming his question.

    Angelina attempted to skirt further questions about the possible adoption, but noted, “You can’t even start the process until any new children are six months old, to understand how the new family has settled.”

    In addition to her work in Afghanistan, Angelina and Brad recently lent their support to their daughter Zahara’s homeland.

    As previously reported by Access, they made a $2 million donation through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation to the Global Heath Committee to create a center for AIDS and tuberculous-affected children in Ethiopia in September.

    The money established a program to help treat drug-resistant tuberculosis in children and adults.

    “Our goal is to transfer the success we have had in Cambodia to Ethiopia where people are needlessly dying of tuberculosis, a curable disease, and HIV/AIDS, a treatable disease,” Angelina said in a statement released to Access.

    The couple also donated $1 million in June to help kids affected by the war in Iraq.
