120 old cameras collected for under-privileged children but still short of target of 200

SINGAPORE - An ongoing collection drive of old cameras to allow disadvantaged children to own their first set of lens has received more than 120 cameras.

With just slightly more than a month before the collection ends in September, organisers hope to reach the target of 200 cameras. These can be things like video cameras, digital still cameras or cameras with interchangeable lens and can be dropped off at Community Clubs like Marine Parade or Kampong Ubi CC in the Marine Parade area.

The cameras collected will be given to children from less privileged backgrounds, from the Marine Parade GRC and social service centre TOUCH Young Arrows. They will then be invited to participate in various photography outings held later this year.

Started by The People's Association and Marine Parade Cluster, the Donate Your Old Camera drive started in June and has given out cameras to about 100 children at photo events held earlier this month
