Photo exhibition of Vanni IDP's in Norway

The Tamil Youth Organization (TYO) of Bergen, Norway, launched an exhibition titled "No Home – Just Hope" displaying photos depicting the plight of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Vanni, Sri Lanka.


The exhibition was launched at the Hanseatisk Museum in Bergen town, on Friday October 17, inaugurated by Eileen, Kolsås Dalen, culture consultant in Bergen Municipality.


Friday was chosen for the launch as it marks the day the United Nations was founded.


A video film of the Vanni IDPs protesting against the expelling of UN humanitarian workers from the Vanni by the Sri Lanka government, and their picketing of the officials, was also shown at the inauguration of the exhibition.


The exhibition will continue until 20 December.


The inauguration event drew large number of persons from the various communities living in Bergen, organizers said.

We need your support

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.

Despite the risks, our team on the ground remain committed to providing detailed and accurate reporting of developments in the Tamil homeland, across the island and around the world, as well as providing expert analysis and insight from the Tamil point of view
