Kinsmen Park to host World Vision's One Life Experience exhibit
SASKATOON, Aug. 12 /CNW/ - On August 14, the World Vision One Life
Experience, a 186 square-metre (2,000 square-foot) interactive AIDS exhibit,
will debut at Kinsmen Park. Visitors will learn about the impact of HIV and
AIDS by hearing the story of four African children through captivating audio
and powerful photography. The exhibit moves visitors beyond the AIDS
statistics to gain an understanding of why the pandemic is the greatest
humanitarian crisis of our time.
The goal of the educational exhibit is to raise awareness about the
plight of children affected by AIDS in Africa. Organizers hope it will draw
Saskatoon residents throughout the 10-day event. More than 30,000 Canadians
have visited the popular World Vision One Life Experience exhibit this year.
Brad Johner will speak about his recent trip to Nicaragua with World
Vision where he met with children and their families benefiting from the
support of Canadians who sponsor children through the organization. Johner
sponsors two girls in Mauritania.
