2015-06-11

They are meant to be more than just videos. It's a way to highlight reality and inspire reflection. They are videos based in Iraq, Ecuador and Burkina Faso.  All of them deal with hunger and what is being done to stop it, from a practical level to an emotional one.

"There are so many forms of poverty. There's the lack of food, but also the lack of affection. Then there's a lack of God. They are all forms of poverty and their absence triggers an interior imbalance.”

These videos will be seen by millions of people in the city of Milan. For six months, millions of people from all over the world are expected to visit it for the 2015 Expo. Food sustainability is at the core of the conference. The Vatican has a pavilion which showcases these three videos.

Pontifical Council Cor Unum, Secretary 
"We wanted to show and highlight what the Church is doing to respond to this problem of hunger.” 

From a water production program in Burkina Faso to promote agriculture and healthy living, to a food bank initiative in Ecuador, where food sustainability and production is the goal. Last but not least, the third video is based in Erbil, highlighting the plight persecuted Christians are enduring in Iraq.

Pontifical Council Cor Unum, Secretary 
"We wanted to show the reality these minority groups are going through in Iraq, especially the Christian minority. We want to show what is being done to respond to this serious emergency.” 

In addition to the three videos, the first wall of the Vatican pavilion will show a set of photographs from all over the world, highlighting the social realities, strengths and challenges different communities face.
