The Trust

The Sylvia Wright Trust is a registered charity which supports the work of Sylvia Wright in the Indian State of Tamil Nadu. Sylvia sold her home and possessions in Leeds 32 years ago to work relentlessly and courageously among the sick and disabled in this very poor area of India.

Over the years, Sylvia has built and established a modern hospital, a school for Hearing Impaired children, two centres for severely disabled children as well as running many vital community health projects. In 2009 she founded a Nursing College which reached its full complement of 80 nurses in July 2012.

The Trust, which is based in Leeds, comprises enthusiastic and committed volunteers who raise funds to support this work. Sylvia’s inspiring vision has changed the lives of thousands of sick and disabled people in the very poor southern state of Tamil Nadu.
