A few weeks ago we spent the day working at the WORLD VISION International Distribution Center in Sewickley packing supplies to be shipped around the world. It has just come to our attention the our friends at WV are hosting an amazing experience that we think you should check out called 'Step Into Africa"
This FREE event is touring the USA and stopping for just outside of Pittsburgh in Sewickley. St. Stephen's Church is the host, located at Broad and Frederick Streets, just minutes off of route 65 near the Sewickley Bridge. It takes 20-30 minutes to walk through the exhibit and is a life-changing experience.
The World Vision Experience focuses on children: AIDS is devastating communities around the world, and children are suffering the most.
The experience focuses on Africa, where 12 million children have lost one or both parents to AIDS (worldwide total as of 2006 is more than 15 million).
It's an interactive experience: World Vision is providing local residents with an opportunity to see, hear, and experience in a personal way the greatest humanitarian crisis of our time: AIDS.
The Experience allows visitors to walk through an African village and experience the lives of children whose families have been devastated by AIDS. Despite overwhelming tragedy, these children still have hope.
World Vision offers people ways to take action to stop AIDS. "You can take action to put children first."
