Malawi maternal health exhibit at May Festival Aberdeen university

May 14th, 2014 by

 

Aberdeen photographers:  I was asked by Immpact to have a wee exhibit at the May festival at Aberdeen University to coincide with ‘In conversation with Kate Adie’ and a panel of experts discussing maternal in the developing world.  Dr Ann Phoya  flew over from Malawi to take to the stage.  I must admit that i didn’t know who kate Adie was so i did a quick google search and soon realised she was a bit of a big deal!  The event was hosted by BBC Scotland’s Fiona Stalker, she asked Kate a variety of questions to which she replied every one with a great anecdote, she was so easy to listen to and so interesting, i was rather in awe of her!  For anyone that doesn’t know who she is she worked in journalism, reporting from war zones and hot spots around the world.  She spoke of her time during the Tiananmen Square massacre where she reported from the streets as hundreds of civilians were being killed and the Bosnia crisis, where she lay on the floor of someone’s house as tanks blew up the neighbour’s home with the family in it.  It really is unimaginable.

I got some great feedback from my exhibit.  I met four Malawian midwives who are in Aberdeen for one month, training and observing.  Jane Geddes, an Aberdeen midwife i met in Malawi was also there so it was lovely to catch up.

  • We hired Donna through our wedding planner and since it was a destination wedding we did not meet prior to the day of our wedding - which made me nervous. However, I shouldn't have been - Donna was just INCREDIBLE! Professional, lovely and she even put up with my crazy family (which is like herding cats) and the photos which we received are STUNNING. I highly recommend her for your wedding
