Description: In 2017 there was a devastating flood and mudslide in the Western Area of Sierra Leone where a part of a mountain collapsed killing over 1000 men, women and children and leaving over 3000 people homeless. Being Sierra Leonean and having lived and done business there for over 10 years, Mark was moved to do something to help the victims. He created a GoFundMe account while on his 40th birthday trip to raise money to help the victims staying near the site of the mudslide in Kaningo. He raised almost $10K and with the help of his sister donated needed supplies to over 300 victims who were staying in a school shelter. The "Sorrow of Kaningo" attempts to capture the deep distress, hopelessness, and sorrow of the victims. All proceeds from the sale of this painting will be donated to victims who years later are still suffering from the loss experienced by the devastating floodwaters.
