To help Save the Children Sweden, this summer Aftonbladet TV and Fotografiska are raising awareness of the Horn of Africa famine. The series of reportage “What’s on the plate” launches on Aftonbladet’s channels on 5 July, also the opening day of an exhibition with the same name at Fotografiska museum in Stockholm.
Aftonbladet’s award-winning photographer Magnus Wennman and reporter Erik Wiman have met people who are living and dying in the worst humanitarian disaster since the Second World War. With pictures, text, video and VR they take us with them to Somalia and South Sudan to show what is on children’s plates – grains of rice, a rat, goat’s blood, and water that spreads cholera.
It’s vital that the rest of the world opens its eyes to the Horn of Africa famine. Magnus Wennman and Erik Wiman depict a desperate situation and their reportage only confirms my conviction that we have to do everything in our power to give these children a chance. It’s a race against the clock and we are grateful that Aftonbladet TV and Fotografiska are drawing attention to the situation, says Save the Children Sweden’s Secretary General Elisabeth Dahlin.
