The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) happily invites you to the opening of the Photography Exhibition “Beyond the Armed Violence: Life in Africa” on Wednesday 25th January 2017 at 3:00 PM in the African Community Association (Bab al-Majles), in the Old City, Jerusalem.

The situation of those displaced by the violence in northeast Nigeria, especially women and girls, is extremely difficult. Communities have been torn apart, children are not going to school and almost everyone has lost everything. ICRC is also working in Nigeria to restore contact between family members separated by the conflict.

The ICRC has 29 delegations and missions in Africa. Some of its key operations take place in Libya, Mali, Nigeria, South Sudan, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Somalia.

The ICRC provided food to hungry people in remote areas of South Sudan. It helped treat the injured in Mali, and supported hospitals in Sudan. In many countries in Africa, the ICRC is helping people affected by war and other violence. The photography exhibition captures the resilience to continue living beyond the violence and their hope for a better future.

The Exhibition previews from 25th January 12:00 and continues until 26th January 17:00.
