Heritage Christian Church will host a free educational AIDS exhibit , “World Vision Experience: AIDS – Step Into Africa,” Thursday, Aug. 15 through Sunday, Aug. 24.

The exhibit allows visitors to step into the lives of actual children affected by HIV and AIDS in the hardest-hit region of the world: Sub-Saharan Africa.

It features a 2,340 square foot replica of an African village. Visitors tour the village, listening on headsets to a personal audio track telling the true stories of four children — Kombo, Babirye, Emmanuel, and Mathabo — whose lives have been affected by AIDS.

The free exhibit will be open from Friday, Aug.15 – Sunday, Aug. 24, with the exception of Monday, Aug 18 and Friday, Aug 22.
