Angelina Jolie - Angelina Jolie helps sick staff member

Picture:

Angelina Jolie is paying a cancer-stricken wardrobe assistant's bills.

The 'Maleficent' actress was quick to reassure a long-term helper that she would have nothing to worry about financially after she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and has even promised the woman work when she finishes treatment.

According to reports, Angelina promised to cover all the wardrobe assistant's living expenses and guaranteed she would get her job back when she finished treatment - and if the actress wasn't working at the time, she would find her work on another project.

A source told National Enquirer magazine: ''The woman was so touched by Angie's kindness, she told pals she just wishes everyone could know what a good person she is.''

Angelina - who raises six children with partner Brad Pitt -is known for her charitable efforts and marked World Refugee Day last June with a $100,000 donation to the UN Refugee Agency today.

The brunette beauty - who is a special envoy of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) - said at the time: ''In the past year 4.3 million people have become displaced.

''There are still 2.7 million refugees from Afghanistan; 12 million people are stateless. And for the fifth consecutive year the number of forcibly displaced people worldwide exceeded 42 million

''The international community should rededicate itself to preventing conflict, addressing it when it erupts, and solving it more quickly, for that is the only way to create durable solutions for the refugees whose strength inspires us on this World Refugee Day.''

''Every individual refugee matters. Each has their own story. Each has suffered and survived more than I could ever bear. And yet, they rise up to live another day.''
