Event description

Description

Uprooted: the plight of 40 million internally displaced people around the world.

Come along to this free talk from Christian Aid which ties in with an exhibition of the the same name. "Uprooted" stories on display include those forced to flee their homes due to conflict in Iraq, drought in Kenya and terrorism in Nigeria. These stories also inspire with examples of how host communities and individuals have extended generosity and hospitality. Diane Green, Campaign Officer for Christian Aid, will speak about this issue and the exhibition on Sunday 13 May as part of the Book Sale & Festival.
