Dave McEndarffer buys Shoes for Previously-Barefoot Children in Kyarumba, Uganda

Posted: Thu, October 29, 2015 | By: Mini-Projects



Dozens of children in the mountain village of Bwethe, in western Uganda, received shoes yesterday due to the generosity of Dave McEndarffer.

After $150 of Dave’s money was wired there via Western Union, the townspeople purchased shoes in Kasese - a large town one hour away. The shoes cost between $1-$2.50 each.

Previous to this, many of the children were barefoot - an unhealthy situation - it can lead to pinworms, for example.

Bwethe is in the Ruwenzori mountains. It has no road access; the closest dirt road, in Kyarumba, is a one hour hike down a steep trail.

Dave McEndarffer works for RKI Instruments in Kansas City, Missouri. His friend and co-worker, Bob Pellissier, is also a contributor to Brighter Brains projects in Uganda.
