Images capture attention of MSPs in Scottish Parliament

A series of stunning images from Malawi and India by award winning Aberdeen photographer Donna Murray have been on show this week in the Scottish Parliament.

The “Mothers in Malawi and India” Exhibition is the result of a collaboration between photographer Donna Murray and international maternal health group, Immpact.  www.immpact-international.org

MSPs including Minister for Public Health Maureen Watt, who sponsored the exhibition, Minister for External Affairs and International Development, Humza Yousaf, and even the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon stopped by.  A number of MSPs were tweeting about the exhibition over the course of the week.   Shelagh Barr from the Immpact group said “we were invited to exhibit in the Scottish Parliament during the early part of last year and its been well worth the wait; we’ve had excellent feedback from MSPs of all parties who said the images were “stunning” and were impressed to hear about the work Immpact does in countries like Malawi and India”.   

The Immpact group aims to raise awareness around the quality of health care for mothers in developing countries and the chronic lack of medical transport in rural areas. 

Next week, Immpact will host a play at the University’s May Festival to highlight these issues.   ‘A Mother’s Journey’ is a dramatisation of a young woman’s struggle to reach hospital in Sub-Saharan Africa and is showing on 29th May in the Linklater Rooms, King’s College.  The photos will also be on display during the performance.
