Exposed and hungry at gallery@oxo

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 United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP).

To raise awareness of the plight of these displaced people - whose lives rarely feature in the media - photographer Susan Schulman was commissioned to document the issues of bringing shelter and food to the troubled Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

Her images show joy as well as desperation and the people's stories tell of their experiences in camps and in transit and the emotions when they return home and start life anew.

The exhibition is fully funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
