Children in Crossfire was founded in 1996 by Richard Moore. In 1972, as a 10-year-old child, Richard was blinded by a rubber bullet fired by a British soldier during the Troubles in Northern Ireland. Amazingly from childhood to the present day, he has accepted the loss of his sight without any feelings of resentment. In describing his remarkable acceptance of what, for most, would be a debilitating trauma, he says “I learned to see life in a different way, I may have lost my sight, but I have my vision”.Just as Richard’s life emerged as triumph out of tragedy through his experiences of compassion in the face of challenge, Children in Crossfire pursues its vision through and with that same compassion. Specifically, it responds to the rights and needs of children and young people caught in the crossfire of global poverty, injustice and inequality by using a Two-Pronged Approaches.Established in 1996, Children in Crossfire help the most vulnerable children on the planet who suffer from the injustices of poverty. Over the past 20 years we have worked in many countries in Africa, Asia & South America and supported thousands of children. Today our focus is Tanzania and Ethiopia where we work with young children to give them the best start in life. We improve early childhood education services, provide nutritional support and health education to the most vulnerable families and we partner with parents, communities and local and national authorities. We believe that working in this way helps children reach their potential
