United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees goodwill ambassador Angelina Jolie has recorded a PSA for the 2010 World Refugee Day, which will take place on June 20.

It is the second time the star – who has visited over 20 countries for the organization since 2001- has recorded a video for the annual event, which aims to raise awareness of the 34 million people of concern to UNHCR who face a shortage or lack of the essentials of life – clean water, food, sanitation, shelter, health care and protection from violence and abuse. Last year, she also marked the day by appearing alongside UN High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres to call on the world to recognize millions of victims of conflict around the world not as a burden but as a potential gift at an event in Washington DC.

“Having a home, a place we belong, a place we feel safe, is something most of us take for granted,” she says in the video. “Please remember the millions of people around the world forced from their homes. Because the only hope of return is to not be forgotten.”
