A little background. According to the deputy director of the Medico-Social Rehabilitation Center "Way of Life" Irina Roshkovich, on the 3rd of June 2014, there was the opening of the photo exhibition in the public library of Corvallis entitled "Celebrating Diversity".
The exhibition featured photos from Ukraine and from Corvallis.
Photos from Ukraine are 40 winners of the National contest "Charity through the lens 2012" conducted by the Ukrainian Philanthropists Forum (UPF).
In the autumn of 2013, in Uzhgorod, the opening of this exhibition was attended by a delegation of TOUCH from Corvallis. When organizing an event in the city of Corvallis, they decided to invite local photographers who received the task to cover the lives of people with disabilities.
The results of their work will be presented to Uzhgorod residents at the photo exhibition "Enjoy life! Cherish hope!"
