Can you help?
Today we are looking for (used) camera equipment for charity projects in Africa. Please read the story below.

This portrait I made of Samson. Samson lives in Ng’Ombe, Zambia. A place with the highest rates of HIV on earth. Here it is where Samson gives education to the youth about HIV as a volunteer for charity. This year he is doing his exams at high school. Samson has a passion for photography, but camera equipment is impossible to buy for people in this region of the world. During my visit in Zambia for charity organisation Orange Babies I noticed him and talked about his passion for photography. On my flight back to Europa I was thinking about how great it would be if we could support talented photographers near Orange Babies projects. Then they can report for the organisation directly and start a small business to feed their family and change their direct environment. I talked with CameraTools.nl and they where so kind to provide 2 Canon cameras with accessories. 
When I came back in Zambia this year I brought the camera for Samson and asked him to be my guide and assistant for 10 days, so he could learn from me in the field. These where 10 amazing days with a lot of fun and laughter. A few months later I am guiding him over the internet, as a mentor and a friend. The last week he shot his first paid job. Thanks to

Thanks to "Stichting Opstap” he shot portraits of children at 2 projects in Zambia which he printed for the children to hang on their wall. Most of them never had a picture of them printed in their lives. He also got some requests from other projects in the region. Samson has still many miles to go, but at least the snowball started rolling. - So maybe you can help too? Samson doesn’t have a laptop to edit his pictures and movies on. Some extra lenses for his Canon EF camera would also be great. For example the Canon 50mm 1.8 lens would be great. We also would be very thankful to have 2 more camera with accessories for other Orange Babies regions. It doesn’t need to be the newest, but good enough to get a semi-professional result. Can you help? Please send a direct message or email to studio@adriankuipers.com THANK YOU! Regards Adrian
