I have been unable to find anyone at Beeld prepared to take photos of the newspaper articles in an attempt to improve the quality of the photos. If someone is prepared to go for an outing to Beeld with a camera I will help make the arrangements – unfortunately I am down in the Cape and cannot get to the Beeld offices in Joburg.
The children deserve better photos than these, so if you are a friend or family member please send me any photos you have available. Attachments can be uploaded on the contact page. Keep in mind that in years to come relatives of these children will want to know what happened to the brother, sister, uncle or niece they never knew and this site will give them some appreciation of what happened on that day. 10 or 20 Years from now they may have no easy access to photos if they gather dust in album somewhere.
