Angelina Jolie visiting refugees, UNHCR photoUnderstanding that many people are suffering from “compassion fatigue,” Angelina Jolie stepped forward on Monday to donate $100,000 to efforts to help the victims of the floods in Pakistan.

While promoting her spy thriller “Salt” in London, Jolie told the Washington Post that she understands “it is getting hard for people – they see Haiti, they see these other events … and they get exhausted by the time another big one rolls around.”

In 2009, the Jolie-Pitt Foundation earmarked $1 million to aid refugees in Pakistan, where the Taliban had driven millions of people in the region from their homes.

Jolie has visited Pakistan several times as a U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Goodwill Ambassador.
