PORT-AU-PRINCE -- Angelina Jolie, the actress and United Nations goodwill ambassador, was in the capital Saturday for meetings with President René Préval.
Jolie, who is well known for her interest in children, was on a fact-finding trip to learn more about the situation of Haiti's children, particularly those left homeless and orphaned by the Jan. 12 earthquake. Jolie is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, UNHCR. She met judges, lawyers, ministry of social affairs officials and other actors involved in children's issues to get a sense of the problem.
Friday, she visited the United Nations Stabilization Mission (MINUSTAH) log base, where she was the star attraction at a reception.
There were no Brad Pitt sightings.
