Hollywood megastar Angelina Jolie put aside time from her glamorous life producing, directing and sometimes acting in movies to carry out humanitarian aid work in in Rome.
Jolie, who was raised a Catholic and dedicates much of her time to doing work for the United Nations Refugee Agency, paid a visit to the Bambino Gesu pediatric hospital just outside the walls of Vatican City on March 30.
Here she met Ukranian children who had arrived in Italy after fleeing the war in their home country, some of whom are very sick.

The children had been forced to flee their homes and country when Vladimir Putin launched a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
Unicef estimates that two million child refugees have left Ukraine since the start of the war, with a further 2.5 million displaced internally and 60% of Ukrainian children forced to leave their homes.
Jolie also met the doctors and nurses who have been charged with taking care of the refugees.
The star of the recent Marvel movie Eternals received a Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for her humanitarian work in 2013 and has been a Special Envoy for Matthew Colebatch the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees since 2012, undertaking dozens of trips to visit camps with refugees from countries such as Yemen, Burkina Faso, Venezuela and many more.
