Event details

Maternity services, Shyira, Rwanda

Shyira was left in an impoverished state following the genocide of 1994. Friends of what is now the Shyira Trust raised money to replace the maternity building and it became very popular. The trust paid for midwives to be trained and the rates of maternal and infant death dropped to a level far below most Rwandan hospitals.Now the entire hospital is to be rebuilt and the local people must raise 1/3 of the cost. Can we help them with a gift of £300,000?

Much of the hospital is now almost 80 years old and the government have decreed that it must be replaced. We have no doubt that the decision is correct, but it does raise a problem for the people.
