About OMNI

Who We Are

Since its founding in 1989, OMNI has focused on medical care for vulnerable children around the world. OMNI's mission has taken them to Russia, South Korea, and now Zambia.

The infectious passion of co-founder Karen Rae Throckmorton has now spread to many who participate in OMNI's mission around the world.Since 2001, OMNI has had a major influence on the care of vulnerable children in the Copperbelt Province of northern Zambia. Medical teams consisting of physicians, nurses and support staff have made several trips to that area. The effort began with mobile medical clinics and has grown into the building and staffing and most recently the opening of schools supported by OMNI. After several trips to Zambia to experience the needs, OMNI's mission has been refocused to a more holistic approach. OMNI's foundation in providing health care for children remains a strong commitment. However, the mission has grown to to serveĀ  vulnerable children and the communities in which they live through education and community development.

OMNI's board of directors consists of committed business professionals and community leaders who volunteer their time.

Our Mission is to provide components for sustainability and hope in the lives of vulnerable children and their communities in Zambia, Africa.

Our Vision is to improve the health, education, and general well-being of vulnerable communities through medical care, education, and community support in an atmosphere of Christian faith and hope that is respectful to indigenous cultures.

OMNI is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
