On 28 February Think Centre (TC) in Singapore launched its Cambodian Landmine Survivors Support Campaign Photo Exhibition with a social dialogue on disabled citizens.
Think Centre creates public awareness posters to support landmine victims in Cambodia. The posters will be difficult to ignore with authentic, moving images of landmine victims! The posters are getting global attention, making heads turn, making eyes wet, and touching the hearts. The Think Centre's posters are reaching out to Singapore residents and the world.
The Newsweek issue of March 5th, on page 52 - carry's the poster "And you are worried about stepping on dog poo" and Hong Kong based Media 26.03.04 [Marketing and Communication Newspaper for Asia]featured the poster "Ever wondered why Cambodia is ranked 178 in the world soccer?"
The campaign is designed to make Singaporeans sit up and take notice of the plight of their neighbours, and hopefully dig into their pockets to help alleviate the plight of the Cambodians.
We cannot create awareness without your help. We appeal to you to give us any space available, so we can raise awareness for this worthy cause.
Please contact Think Centre for the posters.
Landmine Survivors Support Campaign
Socially concerned citizens from all walks of life attended the Forum on disabled citizens which was the prelude to the opening of the photo exhibition on landmine-disabled by Think Centre. Sinapan Samydorai, President of Think Centre announced that Think Centre's 2004 anti-landmine awareness campaign in the form of a photo exhibition depicting the lives of landmine victims. The initiative is in collaboration with the M&C Saatchi Singapore, who designed the black-and-white photo-editorials that were publicly exhibited for the first time.
Singapore has not joined the Mine Ban Treaty and is one of only a dozen landmine producers which has not renounced production. Joint efforts such as these, by NGOs and in this case a large advertising agency, will certainly help raise awareness regarding the plight of landmine survivors in neighboring countries like Cambodia as well as the need for Singapore to join the international community in banning this weapon.
