Gainesville Gets a Guided Tour of the Aids Crisis in Africa
Gainesville is getting a unique look at the African AIDS crisis through Trinity Church. Trinity is hosting World Vision's "Step Into Africa" exhibit. Inside the setup, you can walk through the life of a young child affected by AIDS living in Africa. You're given a headset to hear the child's story as you go.
At the end of the tour, you learn the fate of the child whose steps you've traced.
World Vision also provides a prayer wall and different ways to donate supplies or time to victims of AIDS. Shawn Saleme of World Vision says "after seeing the effects of poverty around the world, it's difficult to just live for yourself." He adds that because "not everyone has the opportunity to travel...in a way we bring the travel experience here."
The exhibit is open to the public through October 14 and it is family friendly.
