* Donate a camera

One of our volunteers/social workers in Ahvaz-Iran is in need of a camera to be able to take pictures of the children whom are being sponsored by Daayeh. His last two cameras were stolen and as you may know cameras are very expensive in Iran and he is not able to make such a purchase.

If you have an extra camera which you do not use, please send it to me and I will get it to our volunteer in Ahvaz. You may deduct the market value of the camera as a charitable contribution and I will gladly provide you with a receipt for it. Thank you for your generosity. Email Malihe Evans
