World Vision Canada


World AIDS Day 2007

Kitchener to host Ontario launch of World Vision's AIDS awareness exhibit

KITCHENER, ON, Nov. 27 - The World Vision One Life Experience, a 186 square-metre (2,000 square-foot) interactive African village, will launch on Wednesday, November 28 at Your Kitchener Market.

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 11-day event, especially on World AIDS Day on December 1st.

World Vision chose the Kitchener/Waterloo/Guelph/Cambridge area as the first Ontario stop on the exhibit's Canadian tour to thank local supporters who give so generously to the organization's work. Area residents sponsor 10,950 children in developing countries - the most of any region in Ontario.

Visitors can learn about the impact of HIV and AIDS through the stories of four African children told with captivating audio and powerful photography. The One Life Experience exhibit helps people move beyond the AIDS statistics to an understanding of why the pandemic is the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time.

WHAT: Special preview for media and VIPs

WHEN: 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, November 28, 2007
