Survivors Fund (SURF) is the principal international organisation representing and supporting survivors of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. Founded by Mary Kayitesi Blewitt OBE in 1997, SURF supports survivors through organisations established and managed by survivors themselves. We support projects from healthcare to housebuilding, education to entrepreneurship. This support is delivered by local partners in Rwanda including AVEGA (Association of Widows of the Genocide). The ultimate goal of SURF is to secure a world in which the rights and dignity of survivors is respected, and where survivors are empowered to rebuild a sense of self and trust in humanity.
