capital city: During her visit Jolie met Venezuelan refugees who live at a shelter in the capital city and also went to a border crossing in the north of the country, according to CTV. On Tuesday, Jolie met with Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra to discuss potential solutions to the migrant crisis and ways of securing international support. Jolie was ending a three-day visit to Peru as a special envoy for the United Nations refugee agency. After the meeting she thanked Peru for taking measures that are helping Venezuelans in that country to get legal status, and urged governments around the world to support procedures that help refugees to apply for asylum. More than 1.9 million people have left Venezuela since 2015 according to the United Nations and some 400-thousand have moved to Peru. Jolie says none of the Venezuelans she met want charity-- they want an opportunity to help themselves. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
