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.

Jolie, whose last humanitarian visit was to Tunisia (where thousands had fled from Libya) in April, is currently staying with Brad Pitt and their six kids in an $11 million mansion in Malta. Pitt, 47, is filming World War Z in the southern European nation.
