This semester LCC welcomes ten Yazidi students from Iraq. One of these students, Zina, is taking part in a photography exhibition at the National Roman Museum MAXXI. Italian government initiated the project in collaboration with UNICEF.
Zina was invited to exhibit her work produced when she lived in a displacement camp. Her photography captures the horrid reality the Yazidis have to face as a result of genocide. Zina lived in a camp for two years before she arrived to LCC. A couple of years ago UNICEF began a photography workshop for 25 young Yazidi women who were affected by the massacre. Zina took part in the project. Her photographs demonstrates the reality of ISIS war Yazidis experience. Thousands of visitors of National Roman Museum MAXXI now have an opportunity to see this unique exhibition and learn more about the genocide of the Yazidis.
LCC International University is very proud to support students like Zida and hopes to provide them with opportunities for a better future.
LCC is also planning to bring the exhibition to Lithuania.
