ST. CATHARINES, ON, Feb. 20 /CNW/ - Tomorrow, the World Vision One Life
Experience, a 186 square-metre (2,000 square-foot) interactive AIDS exhibit,
will launch in the Sears Court at The Pen Centre. Visitors will learn about
the impact of HIV and AIDS by hearing the story of one 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 say they hope the
exhibit will draw local residents throughout the 10-day event. More than
13,700 people have already visited the World Vision One Life Experience
exhibit on its national tour.
