UNHCR open air photographic exhibition “Refugees: Real People, Real Needs” in Larnaca

From 18 August until September 3, in Larnaca, by the sea front (the Palm Trees promenade “Foinikoudes”).

The Mayor of Larnaca and the Representative of UNHCR in Cyprus opened the exhibition on Tuesday 18 August at 8.00 p.m. along the Palm trees promenade.

Launched in Nicosia on June 20, hosted in Limassol and Pafos, the traveling exhibition consists mainly of a selection of the most powerful winning photos of World Press Photo (WPP) shedding light on the situations which create refugees. By putting a face behind the unknown masses of refugees, the exhibition attempts to foster understanding and empathy, to fight prejudices and wrongly built stereotypes about people who were forced to flee their homelands and they are in need of international protection.
