Make Them Visible Photographic Exhibition

This exhibition features images from South Sudan by World Press Photo award-winner Kieran Doherty, whose famil is originally from Belfast.
Doherty said: "Behind each photo is an individual human being - just like you and me - who has had to flee, leaving behind belongings, a home, friends and often family. Hopefully this photo exhibition can then help make these 'invisible people' visible by highlighting the situation of South Sudanese refugees and their families."​
