Tim Benson, Vice President of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, is committed to using his paintings to tell the stories of people throughout the world who don’t have a voice.
Zambia is one of the poorest countries in the world; approximately 78% of its rural population lives in poverty. Of these, an estimated 245,440 people are blind and visually impaired.
Tim spent one week in Zambia to meet members of the local communities who had sight-saving surgery and the health staff trained by Orbis medical volunteers.
This video documents Tim’s journey all the way to his final exhibition.
