An inspirational exhibition, featuring photos and artwork from Haiti, is coming to Stonehaven Library next week.

Called ‘I Witness’ the exhibition, by international development charity Christian Aid, will be on display from April 19 (after 4pm) until the April 28.

There is launch event on April 19 at 5.30pm which will include a look at Christian Aid’s work in Haiti and Bangladesh and also the chance to learn more about its climate change campaign ‘The Big Shift’.

In the I Witness exhibition visitors see the work that Christian Aid is supporting through its partner organisations in Haiti and meet some of the inspirational people who are rebuilding their lives in the face of overwhelming odds.

Jo Dallas, legacy coordinator for Christian Aid Scotland, said: “I’m delighted to be bringing this touring exhibition to Stonehaven Library (Evan Street) which is an ideal and central venue in the town.

“I hope that lots of people will take the opportunity to learn more about our work in Haiti, the third largest country in the Caribbean but the poorest in the Western Hemisphere.”

Haiti hit the headlines six years ago, in January 2010, after the terrible devastation caused by an earthquake. Hurricane Sandy then battered the country two years later. The exhibition focuses on stories of hope and resilience from the communities in Haiti where Christian Aid’s local partner organisations have been working.

The I Witness exhibition came out of a visit three Christian Aid supporters made to Haiti in 2013, to see for themselves how gifts they have made are making a difference. To confirm your attendance at the launch please email jdallas@christian-aid.org
