Shyira Trust

Charity description

Shyira Trust logo
The Trust exists to serve the people of Rwanda by helping in the advancement of education and medical services. Its work has been based around Shyira in the North West, but is now moving to a slightly wider area. The Trust works through local people to promote development and does not hand out funding to individuals.

We first started working with the people of Shyira in 2001, first rebuilding a maternity hospital and then supporting two nurses for training as midwives. The result has been a huge reduction in the number of infant and maternal deaths and a maternity hospital growing in popularity.As Rwanda recovers from genocide the government have been seeking to improve the quality of all services, and the maternity building is now only appropriate for 12 mothers. A new building is urgently required and will cost £300,000. Donations through this profile page will, at present, all go to the rebuilding.
