Would you like to Champion the cause of the Shyira Trust? If so please consider organising some kind of fundraising event, especially an event to help build a new maternity hospital. Please contact us if we can give any support for your event.


100% of donations received by the trust are sent to Rwanda. The trust has members who pay a membership fee, and that pays the cost of managing the trust.
