Welcome to the Sylvia Wright Trust

The Trust is a registered charity which supports the work of Sylvia Wright in the Indian State of Tamil Nadu. Sylvia, a nurse from Leeds in the UK, sold her home and possessions in 1982. She has worked for four decades with children who have disabilities and people needing hospital treatment in a very poor area of India.
She set up and managed a residential school for 200 children who have hearing impairments, a day centres for 80 children with disabilities, a nursing college for 120 students as well as running many community health projects. She also established a hospital which was transferred to a group of Indian doctors in 2017.
Sylvia's inspiring work has improved the lives of thousands of people. Your support for her continuing work is invited. Please make a donation by clicking on 'Donations'
