FCNL has teamed up with Spin Film for a special screening of HUNGER WARD—a powerful, new documentary that 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.
Join us for a screening of this powerful documentary, 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. They will be joined by special guest, Rep. Adam Smith (WA-09).
This event is sponsored by FCNL and presented in partnership with Spin Film.
