Angelina Jolie showed shrapnel from a bomb found by a little Ukrainian girl, who called it a “special stone”
American actress and Special Envoy for UNHCR showed on her Instagram shrapnel from a bomb. “While I was in Lviv a few days ago, I was shown a ‘special stone’ found by a little girl. The little girl who found it didn’t realize the stone she was playing with was, in fact, a piece of shrapnel from a bomb,” wrote Jolie.
According to Angelina Jolie, many of the children she met from the Kramatorsk train station bombing had pieces of shrapnel recently removed — a difficult and painful process. Fragments close to vital organs were too dangerous to remove and remained inside some of the children’s bodies.
“The fight to end a war, like the one being suffered in Ukraine, is a race to limit the number of casualties killed, injured, displaced, and traumatized every day,” Jolie summed up.
The actress has been supporting Ukraine since the first days of the war and helping organize aid for Ukrainians forced to flee their homes. Before coming to Ukraine, the actress visited a children’s hospital in Rome, which now houses refugee children from Ukraine.
