BRUSSELS, Belgium - Nov. 10, 2013 - PRLog -- The exhibition “One Day of a Child’s Life” was put together by the Charity Foundation “OMK-Uchastie” from Russia that supports children and families in need. The exhibition will take place on 12 - 22 November 2013 at the Jacques Delors building of the EESC (Rue Belliard 99, Brussels, Foyer 6th floor). The vernissage and opening cocktail will be held at 13.00h on 18 November 2013. The exhibition is timed to the International Day of Disabled Persons.

The photos of the exhibition feature one day in life of various children showing their stories and emotions: joy, happiness, sadness, disappointment, etc. The goal of the exhibition is to draw  attention to the challenges that NGOs and privately sponsored foundations dealing with the rights and wellbeing of children face in Russia, namely lack of support from the national and local authorities and limited access to the funding programmes.

The exhibition “One Day of a Child’s Life” is hosted under the patronage of The President of the European Economic and Social Committee Henri Malosse.

The curator of the exhibition is Prof. Dr. Irina Chmyreva - member of the International Association of Arts Critics; German Association of European Photography; Polish Photograph Association  Fotografia/Kwartalnik.

The Chairwoman of the Tutorial Council of the Foundation Irina Sedych said about the exhibition: “The opening of the exhibition in Europe, namely in Brussels, is an attempt to show that the problems we are facing are international. Unfortunately, such cases when parents leave their children exist everywhere. However, those children grow up and experience joy and sadness. Each of them deserve attention and respect from adults. Each of them could be a hero of a series of beautiful artworks. When we put together this exhibition we did not pursue the goal to evoke compassion. We just wanted people that would see it remember their childhood and their happiest day back then. We invite visitors of the exhibition to think what we, adults, can do to make children smile and lough more often. We can also learn a lot from children: their love of life and faith that there are more good and kindhearted people than mean ones in this world.”

The “OMK-Uchastie” Foundation was created in 2008 in  Russia. It is operating on private initiative and donations. The Foundation address problems of childhood and family, supports disabled and cancer seek children in the region. The President of the Foundation “OMK-Uchastie” is Anatoly Sedych.
