Join FCNL for a screening of this powerful documentary, which provides an unflinching look at the human-caused famine in Yemen. Against the backdrop of a forgotten war, Hunger Ward follows health care workers Dr. Aida Asladeeq and nurse Mekkia Mahdi as they work to save the lives of children in two feeding centers. This film screening will be followed by a panel discussion. Joining the panel will be Skye Fitzgerald, Oscar nominee and director of HUNGER WARD, Dr. Aisha Jumaan, president of the Yemen Relief and Reconstruction Foundation, and Hassan El-Tayyab, FCNL legislative manager for Middle East policy. This event is open to anyone, and will include a call to action to lobby Congress to end U.S. support for the war and blockade in Yemen by joining FCNL Advocacy Teams across the country.
