A Different Path Photography Exhibition: Now Open!
We're excited to announce that Compassion UK's new innovative photography exhibition 'A Different Path" isÂ now open. From 25 March - 25 April, you can visit the striking exhibition to understandÂ how Compassion UK is helping new mumsÂ to take a different path out of poverty in Togo, West Africa.
A Different PathÂ
Women in Togo have a 1 in 58 chance of dying in pregnancy or childbirth, while 1 in every 20 babies donâ€™t survive their first year of life. Complications in pregnancy and childbirth, infections, disease and malnutrition are all causes of death, but the root cause of the problem is poverty.
Compassionâ€™s Child Survival projects, delivered by local churches, support women during their pregnancy and help vulnerable babies to get a healthy start in life. Local community workers come alongside women to provide them with access to life-saving medical support, health screening, hygiene supplies, nutritional supplements and education that will help secure a healthy future for them and their families.
The exhibition is taking place at Gallery 101, Salvation Army International Headquarters. It will feature eight full-length, personality led portraits of mothers, babies and staff workers all associated with Compassion's Child SurvivalÂ project in Togo.
Each portrait has an associated 90-second video which can be activated by viewers through their mobile device using a QR code. These videos provide an element of digital interactivity to the gallery experience and lift each story off the canvas.
Dates: 25 March - 25 April 2019
Opening times: Open Monday to Friday 8am-4pm (closed Good Friday and Easter Monday)
Address: Gallery 101, Lower Ground Floor of The Salvation Armyâ€™s International Headquarters, 101 Queen Victoria Street, London, EC4V 4EH.
