Free From Hunger, a new outdoor photographic exhibition produced by international charity Concern Worldwide, opens on 2 October and runs until the end of the month at The Scoop at More London. Concern Worldwide works in some of the world’s toughest places providing life-saving food and nutrition, and also with communities so that families can develop their own lasting solutions to hunger, through developing their knowledge, skills and incomes. The exhibition is part of Concern’s Free From Hunger appeal. Money raised from the appeal will help ensure mothers and babies get the food, water, nutrition and healthcare they need to recover from malnourishment and stay strong and healthy in the long term. All donations received before 24 December will be matched pound for pound by the UK government and this funding will go towards Concern’s work to improve the health and nutrition of mothers and children under five in the Central African Republic, where poor nutrition has led to the country being ranked as the world’s hungriest. Three award-winning photographers – Abbie Trayler-Smith (UK), Chris de Bode (Netherlands) and Nora Lorek (Sweden) – worked on the project and each brought their own distinct style and perspective to depict the issue of hunger in their own way. The powerful images aim to give a voice to the people Concern works with, and bring to life the stark reality of the chronic hunger which faces many people on a daily basis.
