Maddox, who was studying biotechnology in the Asian continent, is, currently focused on his Russian and Korean studies while his classes remain cancelled due to the coronavirus lockdown. Angelina, who recently donated $1million to the charity No Kid Hungry, also expressed her concerns about the current situation children find themselves in around the world, specially in vulnerable families where going to school is the only way to get their only meal a day. “This is something that throughout their lifetimes, they will remember. It is something that older generations, for all their other reference points, have not experienced,” she said.

As a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for the Refugees, Angelina also talked about the hard situation people living in camps are going through, 'Many, for example, live in refugee camps where they don't have the option of self-isolating. Or where they might not even have access to water to wash their hands regularly.'
