Turlock, CA —The nationally touring, interactive “World Vision Experience: AIDS” exhibit will be at New Life Christian Center to raise awareness about the effects of the AIDS pandemic on children in developing countries.  New Life Christian Center is hosting this innovative exhibit in order to engage the community on the issue of how AIDS is devastating parts of Africa.  The free exhibit will be open to the public from Thursday, September 18 through Tuesday, September 23.
“World Vision is providing the people of Stainislaus county with an opportunity to see, hear and experience in a personal way the lives of children whose worlds have been devastated by AIDS,” said David Larson, Senior Pastor
Visitors to the 2,300 square foot exhibit will walk though a replica of an African village while listening on headsets to a story of a child whose life has been affected by AIDS.  The stories profiled in the exhibit are those of four real children touched by the work of World Vision, and are inspired by true events.
“We are excited to host the exhibit and invite the community to come join us as we do our part to make an impact in the lives of those most affected by this disease,” says Larson.
The exhibit is slated to reach 80 cities during 2007 and 2008.  About 3,000 to 4,000 visitors are expected to tour the exhibit in each city during a typical five-day stay. 
“World Vision, unfortunately, cannot take thousands of Americans to Africa to witness the tragedy of the AIDS pandemic personally,” says Richard E. Stearns, president and CEO of World Vision, U.S. “So we’ve created this exhibit to enable people to ‘step into Africa’ and learn more about effects of the greatest humanitarian disaster of our time and how they can help.  No one can do everything, but each of us can to something to help turn the tide against AIDS.”

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
