Our Founder & Director

On Thursday 4th May 1972 when a ten-year-old Richard Moore was on his way home from school, his life changed forever.

As he passed an army lookout post, located at the edge of his school’s playground, a British Soldier fired a rubber bullet from ten feet away, blinding him for life. This is where his remarkable story of forgiveness and compassion begins.
