For the people of the Democratic Republic of Congo…

These are the words:

It is human nature to be
overwhelmed by the inequality
so apparent in todays world.
Few people have never
wondered why it is they have so
much and others so little.
This confusion and concern
provides hope for the people
of D.R. Congo. Because it is
this troubling realisation
which encourages us to act;
to make a donation, to say a
prayer, or to purchase a gift.
HEAL Africa lives on the front
line for us, so we may contribute
what we can, when we can,
confident we’ve made a
difference. You can never give
too little. Love has a happy
way of multiplying.

Calendars also available :)

G’day all, my name is Melinda but my mates call me Mel, so feel free. I live by the beach in Elwood, Victoria, Australia. I contribute to a few charities as a Photojournalist, namely HEAL Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Any of my Africa stuff’s profits go to them. So far the sales have bought 7 operations and heaps more so thanks for everyone’s support. I also take a mean beach shot (well try to).

    what a touching photo. You in South Africa or where? These children are so beautiful. I remember when I went that I had never been hugged so much. He is precious and you caught such a perfect portrait of this wonderful child. I am for sure going to buy some my friend for Christmas presents to heal Africa. They are in dire need I know for sure.

    Actually I should point out this little fella is covered from ankles to the top of his chest in plaster. Probably polio.
