The Associated Press reports that 36-year-old Jolie, Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner, will be greeted at the refugee camp with a 16-yard banner reading "Goodness Angel of the World, Welcome."

The refugees have fled Syria thanks to a violent crackdown on anti-government protesters.
