A charity is preparing to host an exhibition of aerial shots by two members of the Action Times Foundation.

A PHILANTHROPIC organisation called the Action Times Foundation will host a photography exhibition featuring aerial views of Myanmar’s natural landscapes on 16 and 17 October.
The ‘Aerial Photo Gallery Show’ will take place at City Star Hotel near Yangon’s City Hall in Kyauktada Township and it will showcase around 80 works by two members of the Action Times Foundation (ATF).
Photographer Htin Aung Kyaw said, “We took these photographs in popular tourist areas such as the ancient city of Bagan in Mandalay Region, as well as Inlay and Taunggyi in Shan State.”
Prices will start from K30,000 (US$23), with all of proceeds from sales going to senior citizens living in Yangon’s sub-urban Hlinethaya and Shwepyitha townships.
ATF has been providing assistance to poor elderly people without offspring since 2012. The foundation currently provides home-based elderly care to around 50 people, with most residing in Hlinethaya Township.
ATF said it has plans to increase the number of people receiving care in both townships.
