United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) special envoy and Hollywood actress, Angelina Jolie, plans to visit Rohingya camps in Cox's Bazar district this week.

She is likely to arrive on Sunday night and visit Cox's Bazar on Monday to Wednesday, said a diplomatic source, although her schedule might change at the last-minute, reports UNB.

After years of dedicated service to UNHCR and the cause of refugees, Angelina Jolie was appointed special envoy in April 2012.

In her expanded role, Jolie focuses on major crises that result in mass population displacements, undertaking advocacy to representUNHCR and the High Commissioner at the diplomatic level.

She also engages with decision-makers on global displacement issues.

Through this work she has helped contribute to the vital process of finding solutions for people forced to flee their homes.

She has worked tirelessly, carrying out nearly 60 field missions and becoming an influential advocate on refugee and displacement matters.
