Blinded by a rubber bullet at the age of 10, making his way home from Primary School and caught in crossfire, Richard might well have been expected to grow up to be an embittered and disillusioned young man. Driven by an ever growing desire to convey his lack of resentment towards the soldier that shot him, he eventually tracked him down and met with him. They are, today, firm friends, and Charles and Richard now collaborate on many projects. In 1996 Richard gave up a successful business career to found Children in Crossfire and dedicate himself to improving the lives of the many children in the world suffering privations, chief among these being poverty, lack of healthcare and lack of education. Children in Crossfire has become a highly respected international development organisation working in partnership with local organisations, specifically in Tanzania, Ethiopia and The Gambia to deliver programmes which protect and promote the rights of young children, through the provision of healthcare, education services and advocacy initiatives. His indomitable spirit inspires all those around him to go "the extra mile".
