Mwandi Infant Formula Program
Art to Benefit Mwandi Infant Formula Program
Artwork by Edward Wilson -- IPC member, retired pathologist, and member of the IPC mission team to Mwandi Mission in Zambia in August 2008-- was displayed in the art gallery on the second floor at IPC. Ed was very moved by his time in Africa, and since returning home, he has been painting watercolors based on his experiences there. He has donated these watercolors to IPC for sale.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sales of this artwork benefit the Mwandi Infant Formula Program, which provides formula to infants of HIV+ mothers so that the HIV will not be transmitted to their babies through breast milk.
A few of the pieces of art displayed in the gallery were earlier works done by Ed from previous trips to Ireland and to places in the U.S.
