The Sylvia Wright Trust
Mr.Kevin Grundy spoke of the amazing work of Sylvia Wright, a nurse from Leeds, who after selling her house, car and other valuables which included cashing in her pension, moved to a poor village, Tamil Nadu, in southern India where TB and deafness were endemic. Here from small beginnings she set up free clinics which in time evolved into a modern hospital with all the latest equipment for operations and a dialysis unit. She also set up schools for the local children especially the deaf, some of whom are now studying at the local university.
After more than 28 years dedicated work in India a Trust was set up in her name, and she was awarded OBE in 2007.
