Faces of Togo by Zoe Rain


A new photo exhibit by ART WORKS Projects. Women of Togo, explores the West African country that UNICEF named the 15th “Most Dangerous Place to be born” in the world. Malaria, diarrhea, pneumonia, HIV, and malnutrition are major killers of children in Togo. An estimated one-in-ten children will not live to see their fifth birthday. In February 2018, Chicago-based photographer, Zoe Rain, joined Integrate Health/Santé Intégrée, a community-led international health organization, to document the impact that clinic renovations had on isolated communities. Rain, along with Claire Qureshi, vice president of Frontline Delivery for the UN Special Envoy for Health, join us to discuss this health initiative.

The opening and panel discussion of the photo exhibit “Women of Togo” is Thursday, November 15, 6pm at ART WORKS Projects, 625 N. Kingsbury in Chicago
