HOW WE STARTED

RICK SHARPE & ANNIE SYMONS


I first went to Kenya in 2008, as a volunteer for the OMWABINI RESCUE STEPS CHARITY, an AIDS orphans and widows charity, based at Kimilili, Western Kenya. I worked on various projects including construction, teaching and working with music therapy, and the RESCUE STEPS GOSPEL CHOIR. Annie Symons and myself became involved with the charity, and started to send out clothes for the children. We then sourced medical supplies, and put on talent competitions in East Sussex, UK, in order to be able to pay for the shipment of supplies.
OMWABINI have since gone from strength to strength, so much so, that in November 2010, Annie and I decided to form our own charity, in order to allow our aid efforts reach a larger number of people.
RSI are sending medical, educational supplies, bicycles, building supplies, mobile phones and volunteers to Kenya. Supplies are sent in 20ft. shipping containers, which will then utilized as medical clinics. We will be erecting clinics in the Mount Elgon/Greater Bungoma district of Western Kenya. See projects page for details.
We will be sending our own team of nurses to train locals, and instigate community awareness programmes, as we believe that prevention of diseases such as Malaria, Typhoid, Cholera, AIDS, and Jiggers, is paramount. There will be many micro projects, and we will supply help to start projects in villages, and then hand them over for the locals.

KAREN

The photos below are of Karen, a beautiful young Lady, who I had the privilege to know, and spend time with. She died at the age of three in April 2009, from Leukaemia, due to lack of diagnostic, and treatment facilities. RSI are committed to addressing the need for better healthcare, and are opening their first clinic, in Kamukata, North of Kimilili, Western Kenya, around April 2012.
