Just because she's celebrating an engagement doesn't mean she shirks on her charitable duties!

Angelina Jolie, who has been vacationing in the Galapagos Islands with her six children and fiance Brad Pitt, headed to Ecuador this weekend to visit with Colombian people who have been forced to take refuge in the country.

The 36-year-old actress was appointed U.N High Commissioner for Refugees Special Envoy earlier this month, although she has been a U.N goodwill ambassador since 2001 and has completed around 40 humanitarian trips over the last 10 years.

The Oscar winner met up with Ecuador's Foreign Minister, Ricardo Patino, for a meeting in Quito to promote the 'Thanks Ecuador' campaign. Ever conscious of overshadowing her causes, the future Mrs. Pitt wore a simple black ensemble with no makeup. Stars - they're just like us... or not.

"She is expected to focus on large-scale crises resulting in the mass displacement of people, to undertake advocacy and represent UNHCR and Mr. Gueterres at the diplomatic level, engaging with relevant interlocutors on global displacement issues," UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards said in a statement last week.

When will she have time to plan the wedding of the century?!



What do you think of Angelina's humanitarian efforts? Does she bring anything to the cause?
