Boots Come to the Children of the Mountains

May 13, 2008

Hello ROCF Friends and Supporters-

We wanted to share with you a new project ROCF is supporting---supplying the children who live at the highest elevations, in the villages of Kelcanca, Yanamayo, Chupani, and Chaullococcha, with boots to protect their feet in the cold, winter months ahead. In the pictures, you will see Felix, ROCF's Peruvian liason, fitting a child in her boots. Felix is in the midst of going to all four of these villages, measuring shoe sizes, going to Cusco and purchasing the boots, and returning to the villages with the boots and two pairs of socks for each child. Winter is just around the corner for these children, and the boots are coming just in time.

It costs approximately $6.oo for a pair of boots and $2.00 for 3 pairs of socks. If you would like to contribute to this program, please send a tax deductible donation to Reach Out Children's Fund, 323 East Commerce St., Milford, MI 48381. Remember we are a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization and are staffed by volunteers, so 100% of your donation goes toward assisting these communities.

Enjoy the photos :)
