The Independent published this video item, entitled “Angelina Jolie visits Pakistan as officials warn floodwaters could take ‘six months to recede’” – below is their description.

Angelina Jolie has travelled to Pakistan to support the victims of historic flooding which has impacted over 33 million people.

“I’ve been speaking to people and thinking, if enough aid doesn’t come they won’t be here in the next few weeks, they won’t make it,” Ms Jolie said after landing in Dadu on Tuesday, 20 September.

The UN goodwill ambassador said: “I think this is a real wake-up call to the world about where we are at – that climate change is not only real and it’s not only coming, it’s very much here.”
