    EDMONTON, Aug. 16 /CNW/ - The World Vision One Life Experience, a
186 square-metre (2,000 square-foot) interactive African village will launch
today at the West Edmonton Mall. 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.

Canadian tour and is part of World Vision's Edmonton 3200 Campaign running
