DUBLIN – The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has just opened a month-long photo exhibition, Building Resilience: The World Food Programme and the European Union Fighting Hunger Together at Dublin Airport, Terminal 1 (mezzanine above Departures).
The images in the exhibition, which is free to airport visitors, portray the challenges faced by some of the world’s most vulnerable people as they struggle to feed their families on the frontlines of hunger. With EU funding, WFP is helping to build resilience among these communities, meeting their food needs today, and providing the support that will allow them to look after themselves in the future.
Thanks to the generosity of citizens across the European Union, WFP’s partnership with the EU has grown considerably in recent years, and is helping to ensure that vital assistance continues to reach those who are most in need – in 2013 and beyond.
The exhibition coincides with an international high level Conference on ‘Nutrition, Hunger and Climate Justice’ on 15 and 16 April in Dublin Castle, hosted by the Government of Ireland and the Mary Robinson Foundation – Climate Justice.
The Brussels based United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe - UNRIC provides information on UN activities to the countries of the region. It also provides liaison with institutions of the European Union in the field of information. Its outreach activities extend to all segments of society and joint campaigns, projects and events are organized with partners including the EU, governments, the media, NGOs, schools and local authorities.
