GIVING BACK!

During our regular trips to the African continent, we have come to experience Africa in all her beauty, mystery, warmth, culture, and pride. We have entered her mukanda camps, dined with her chiefs and village elders, slept in her mud huts and bathed in her rivers. She also laid bare her tragic side, poverty, aids, illness and war. She leaves behind orphans, widows and victims with serious injuries. We came into contact with local community organizations, that have undertaken the difficult and thankless task of alleviating some of the pain and misery in their surroundings. It is these local organizations in need of assistance that drew us into action. Africa has given so much to us, it was only natural that we give back.

The two main organizations we assist are the Kaoma Chesire community center in Zambia for aids orphans and our newly discovered Centre de Reveil in Lubumbashi, DRC, for war orphans, child soldiers, victims and widows.
We collect donations in the form of used (or new) clothing for all ages, shoes, bedding, blankets, etc. We ship the donated items to these organizations on a regular basis. Any assistance small or large would be greatly appreciated.
We invite you to read more on each community organization, how we got involved with them and how you can help.
- Kaoma Chesire community center for Aids orphans
