Rwandan people helped by Manx charity

Health and education facilities for thousands of people in a Rwandan village are being transformed, thanks to the generosity of Manx people.

Save the Children Isle of Man raised its target of £90,000 last year, to mark the charity's 90th anniversary.

Half of that came from local fund-raising events, with the balance donated by the government's Overseas Aid Committee.

The money's been ring-fenced for the Rwandan village project, where a new medical centre and schools are already rising from the ground.

And it's equipping the local population with the skills to shape their own future.

Professor Hugh Davidson is Vice President of the charity in the Island:
