It all started back at Qubaa Muslim primary school 25 years ago.
Mohammed Rajab Said would not relent but gave the community a special place at the bottom of his heart.
He is a social worker and would always selflessly serve the community and especially the less fortunate in the society.
He is ever busy traversing Mombasa County ensuring all the projects initiated by the humanitarian body Kenya Red Cross Society uplifts the living standards of the community, especially children with special needs.
Volunteerism at tender age
“At class 6, I was already a KRCS Youth member, I was a dedicated volunteer and a team ‘doctor’, I carried the same spirit throughout my secondary education where I joined KRCS club, ” disclosed Mr. Rajab
He could not miss first aid competitions until 2004 when he became the senior First aid instructor.
“This was after I was seconded as the Tana river Emergency Operations food monitor team leader for a whole year,” he divulged.
The slim hard working, tireless social worker was transferred to Mombasa as Blood donor recruiter where he also doubled up as a Tracing focal person, First aid instructor and he head the Red Cross Action Team-RCAT.

Mr. Rajab also served as the KRCS regional first aid Officer for two years.
The calm, composed flexible and dedicated humanitarian aid worker served as E-Plus ambulance service sales leader and First aid instructor before becoming the Mombasa KRCS branch Coordinator, a post he is currently holding dearly.
“I am a dedicated community servant and I have managed various KRCS programs, however disentangling the youth from criminal outfits through the ‘Conflict Prevention, Peace and Economic Opportunities for the Youth in Kenya gave me a special positive feeling at the bottom of my heart, “he disclosed with a broad smile.
Appreciating others, valuing perseverance and being selfless are some of his unique characters that make him going.
Rajab clearly recalls when KRCS Mombasa branch was rated the best performing branch countrywide in 2017, this encouraged him.
The KRCS Mombasa branch coordinator who doesn’t like being referred to as ‘Boss’ is a prayerful person who wants to change the lives of the youth, the society and always serve the community indiscriminately.
Rajab is a dedicated husband and a loving father to his family that he values, cherish and protect.
Whenever he is not busy at the off-Moi avenue situated KRCS Mombasa branch, Rajab is always at home with his family practicing what he loves most, cooking.
He loves the environment too and would not miss any tree planting exercise.

Over the weekend the humanitarian servant spends time at his farm in Kikambala, Kilifi County where he does horticulture farming. He values farming as the backbone of country in terms of food security and in agri-business too.
“I want to see the KRCS funding international projects just like the way Danish and Norwegian Red Cross are funding Kenya Red Cross Society projects, I also look forward to a day when the humanitarian body will as well fund projects in Tanzania, Uganda among other countries as we embrace the East Africa Community strategy,” disclosed the humble KRCS Mombasa branch Coordinator.
