As part of an ongoing project Trustee’s from RLT have been working on collecting memories, photos and stories from people who knew Father Robin Lamburn as part of the 20 year commemoration of Father Robins passing. Father Robin is sometimes referred to as the founder of Kindwitwi and his work is the foundation for the Kindwitwi Leprosy Care Centre today. For more information on our history and Father Robin please visit our history pages.
While RLT places great value on these unique historic documents and the insight they offer into the life of Fr Robin, the personal reflections and faith that he shares do not necessarily represent the views of the Trust.
