Exposed & Hungry - Life in Eastern Congo
Susan Schulman.

LONDON.- The Brunei Gallery/SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies) presents Exposed & Hungry - Life in Eastern Congo, on view through 15 September 2007. The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) presents an exhibition of photographs in London from the Democratic Republic of Congo, which photographer Susan Schulman took on a recent assignment for both agencies.

“Exposed and Hungry: Life in eastern Congo” hopes to raise awareness amongst Londoners and visitors to the UK’s capital of the plight of the displaced in the DRC, whose lives rarely feature in Britain's main media outlets. The exhibition will recount some of the experiences of the displaced Congolese while in camps and in flight, and depict the emotions they feel when returning home and starting life anew.

There are an estimated 1.6 million Congolese who are internally displaced, either by force or fear of force. They benefit from food and shelter through the strong operational partnership between the UN Refugee Agency and the UN World Food Programme. UNHCR and WFP also support the 400,000 Congolese refugees who still live in exile, mainly in neighbouring countries.

“Exposed and Hungry: Life in eastern Congo ” is funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).

Susan Schulman is a freelance photographer whose work has featured in a wide range of international publications. Specialising in editorial and documentary work, Susan has worked with a number of humanitarian agencies.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) provides protection and assistance to more than 21 million people worldwide, among whom are refugees, stateless people and those displaced within their own country.

WFP is the world’s largest humanitarian agency: each year, we give food to an average of 90 million poor people to meet their nutritional needs, including 58 million hungry children, in at least 80 of the world’s poorest countries. WFP - We Feed People.
