40 Million People are displaced

Opening with a Public meeting at 7pm on September 12th and running for a week is a display linked to the Christain Aid Camapaign drawing attention to their plight.

More than 40 million people are displaced within their own country. If we knew all their names, it would take us well over a year to read them aloud – even without stopping to sleep.The reasons for their displacement are many: conflict, flooding, drought, fear. But invariably, the poorest face the hardest challenges. Displacement leaves many without a safe place to call home. It increases the chances of losing out on jobs and education, and it puts people at increased risk of violence.
