Sam Kasonga and the orphans

FLASH! Received offer for camera and it’s on it’s way here. Thank you!

For our Congo orphanage, I need a plain old small digital camera that you may no longer use Since many of us have phones that take superior photos to what we used to take with conventional cameras, those old cameras are tucked somewhere in a drawer. I had two such cameras and gave them away in Africa. If you have a camera that you don’t use and could give away, I’ll give you a tax receipt.

If you can help, contact me at
