Christian Aid’s ‘Uprooted and Overlooked’ exhibition in St Anne’s

Tuesday September 4th 2018

Christian Aid’s ‘Uprooted and Overlooked’ exhibition which is touring the country to raise awareness of the 40 million internally displaced people around the world can now be viewed in Belfast Cathedral.

Because those displaced inside their own country have not crossed a border, they often lack international recognition and support.

A Christian Aid Ireland spokesperson said: “The exhibition will give you the chance to hear displaced people tell their own stories. Through a series of powerful images and individual accounts, you will learn more about the global crisis of displacement, its consequences and the challenges displaced people face.

“The exhibition will also give you the opportunity to involve yourself in the campaign further.”

Stories on display include those forced to flee from their homes due to conflict in Iraq and Nigeria and drought in Kenya. These stories also inspire with examples of how host communities and individuals have extended generosity and hospitality. 

The exhibition, which continues until September 21, can be found in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit adjacent to the Cathedral Welcome Desk. More information.
