Children in Crossfire CEO Richard Moore shares his personal insights of the challenges and rewards of starting a global charity.
Richard wanted to ‘give something back’ after he received so much compassion and support following a tragic injury that resulted in him being registered blind.
Richard encourages listeners to not be afraid to reach out for help, and shares remarkable stories of the impact of the team’s work improving the lives of children and young people in Tanzania and Ethiopia.
Some key quotes from this episode!:
“Computerisation opened up a whole world for any blind person really.”
“It’s all about forward planning and having the confidence to ask for help when you need. Whether it be in employment or not, I’m never afraid to ask for help. I think it’s an indication of strength. Any sighted person that thinks they get through the day without help from anybody, I think they’re bluffing. We all need help whenever those ‘some things’ come about.”
“Much has been achieved and there’s much more to be done, and that’s what gets me out of bed in the morning.”
“Life’s what you make it yourself sometimes.”
