From Monday 24th June to Tuesday 2nd July, Ashcroft Church will be hosting Christian Aid’s Uprooted exhibition. The photographic exhibition is touring the country to raise awareness of the 40 million internally displaced people around the world.
Because those displaced inside their own country have not crossed a border, they often lack international recognition and support.
The exhibition gives 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.
Feel free to visit when the centre is open. For more information or to sign the petition supporting displaced people visit Christian Aid’s website.
