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 the photographer and the University of Aberdeen’s international maternal health group, Immpact.
MSPs including Minister for Public Health Maureen Watt, who sponsored the exhibition, Minister for External Affairs and International Development, Humza Yousaf, and First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon stopped by.
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 were 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 May 29 in the Linklater Rooms, King’s College. The photos will also be on display during the performance.
