RISI World Foundations (RWF)
The idea for RISI World Foundations began in Lagos, Nigeria where every Friday, a mother would send her son to the local orphanage with a donation. This continued until she passed away, and In 1980, this young man established RISI World Foundations in his mother’s name to carry on her legacy and keep her spirit of generosity alive.
RWF organizes medical missions to Africa where free medical care and medications, health screenings, health education programs, supplies, and clothing are given to underserved populations throughout the world. RWF has already helped thousands of those who don’t have access to basic medical care throughout Africa and are working to increase their reach to provide these services wherever they may be needed.
RWF also donates time and effort to their local community of Baltimore Maryland through an annual “Kick Hunger” campaign to feed the homeless of Baltimore and through sports camps for the local Boys and Girls Clubs of Maryland.
