Cate said she heard ‘gut-wrenching accounts’ of torture, rape, people seeing loved ones killed before their eyes, and children thrown into fire and burned alive.

‘Their experiences will never leave me,’ the two-time Academy Award winner told the packed building at the UN headquarters in New York.
Cate visited the refugee camps in Bangladesh in her role as a goodwill ambassador for the UN refugee agency in March this year.
