This is former-UFC and current-Bellator fighter Justin Wren, who travels to the Congo to build wells and to free slaves. This is the first time these kids have seen a white guy, someone with a huge beard, and someone that has hair on their arms.
Justin runs a charity called Fight for the Forgotten, they’re really close to reaching their goal on Kickstarter so check it out.

Hairy & Scary in Congo! 1st time kids see white dude & even see arm hair! First time they see a beard… And they get to see themself doing it on the screen of the iPhone 4s front screen while they are doing it. I love this little kiddo’s! They are such a joy. We are working to help these people in need… But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun while doing it!
Wouldn’t it be SURREAL to be the first of your particular ethnicity to be seen by someone? I got three weeks of it in the remote parts of Eastern Congo… Especially in the deeper parts of the jungle they would even hide behind the tree’s.
