For years we've used documentary films as a powerful tool to introduce people to the crisis in Sudan and provide them specific ways to get involved. While this has proven to be very effective and produced some incredible results, filmmaking is just one approach to storytelling. Today, we're announcing a new project that will reach an entire new audience in a unique way about the crisis in Sudan and our friends living through it.
In May of 2016, Operation Broken Silence commissioned talented photographer Katie Barber to document life in Yida Refugee Camp as part of our organization’s efforts to use media for social change in Sudan. Yida is home to over 70,000 men, women, and children who have fled the government of Sudan's genocidal war in the Nuba Mountains region. Katie captured over 4,000 photos in Yida and several hundred of them have been pre-selected for a traveling photography exhibit our organization is currently seeking funds to build. And that's where you come in! Here's how you can help us get the exhibit off the ground:
