Angelina Jolie has completed her first trip as a UN special envoy.
The actress made her third visit to Ecuador.
She was talking to some of the thousands of refugees who have fled violence in neighbouring Colombia.
She urged Ecuadorians to be tolerant towards the refugees.
"I see how some people are treated and I hear of some of the restrictions (they face) and my heart breaks," she said.
"I wish I could express to all the people of Ecuador how much it means to the people who are here and please to be tolerant and understanding that these are people who have suffered so much violence."
