Regina to host World Vision's interactive African village



    REGINA, Aug. 22 /CNW/ - On August 28, the World Vision One Life
Experience, a 186 square-metre (2,000 square-foot) interactive AIDS exhibit,
will debut outside of Victoria Square Shopping Centre. 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
Regina residents throughout the 10-day event. More than 36,000 Canadians have
visited the popular World Vision One Life Experience exhibit this year.
