JOPLIN, MO.--- A Joplin nonprofit organization is asking the public for a much needed donation. Directors with the Rapha House need a laptop to send to their education manager in Cambodia. The manager oversees about 200 children, so she needs a mobile learning tool to go into the villages and teach her lesson plans.

The organization also needs about 50 refurbished laptops to send to children in both Cambodia and Thailand. Directors say the computers are a vital part of reintegrating the victims of child slavery back into society.

"The whole world has just gone global, and we want our girls to know how to be proficient in computers so that they will have those first opportunities at jobs," said Stephanie Freed, Rapha House U.S. Director.

If you are able to help the organization, you can stop by the Rapha House anytime during normal business hours with your donation.
