About the event

The British Red Cross has brought one of the world’s most silent humanitarian emergencies to busy central London with the One Meal a Day photography exhibition.

Over seven million people living in Africa’s Lake Chad region - spanning Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger and Chad - are affected by the current food crisis, a result of chronic underdevelopment, drought and conflict.

Award-winning Panos photographer Chris de Bode has captured the crisis in One Meal a Day: the Lake Chad crisis in pictures, a public exhibition telling the story of the devastating crisis through food.

Despite the huge scale of the situation the Lake Chad crisis is effectively a silent emergency, a humanitarian emergency that is failing to make the headlines.

This free exhibition gives a voice to the people of Lake Chad who are struggling to survive on just one meal a day.
