Richard was born in Nairobi, Kenya, raised in Entebbe, Uganda and currently living in Lilongwe Malawi with his wife and three daughters. Growing up in an animal loving household, helped nurture his love for animals which has led him to his life long challenge of working with people to help the animals, promote animal welfare and curtail suffering. With over 17 years experience in the struggle to promote the welfare of animals, All Creatures has offered yet the perfect opportunity to address this on a wider, more systematic and sustained effort.

All Creatures is a  locally registered animal welfare charity in Malawi. The Trust was established to promote animal welfare in holistic approach but from a local perspective in order to respect the local traditions and social norms while embracing the current science. We draw from the positives that science reveals, to build on the desirable community or society practices while raising awareness to cause a behavioural shift to the predominantly desirable practices. This is attained through a dedicated team of all local staff to whom animal welfare and all its benefits and challenges effects are close to home. The organization seeks to build capacity locally to not only tackle animal well-being but all to build a critical mass of informed individuals to drive the animal welfare agenda locally and nationally. Through our core values, All Creatures values the synergies derived from partnerships, collaborations and government engagement. In the quest to reverse what is viewed to a bad state of affairs in most of Africa, we strongly commit to education activities as the most effective and sustainable means of creating a better place for the animals in Africa.
