Welcome to the David Rundle Trust website

a Charity helping the people of Rwanda


This small but beautiful, mountainous country is situated in central Africa and shares its western border with the still highly volatile Democratic Republic of Congo. The violence of genocide and ensuing war destroyed Rwanda's infrastructure and severely impoverished the population, particularly women and children. The memory of these times continues to affect Rwanda and the surrounding area of Africa to this day.

The Trust works mainly in the remote foothills of the Virunga mountains (home of the famous mountain gorillas) but also as far south west as Cyungugu on Lake Kivu.

There is now gender programme for women; free schooling up to the age of 13 years; free Family Planning for women holding health cards; banning of all plastic bags; building of wood saving Bono cookers reducing carbon emissions by 80% and saving gorillas' habitat who are an important part of tourism and the economy. Great progress is being made in many areas and Rwandans are positive and determined to make a future for their children.

It is with much sadness that I write to report that around midday on Wednesday, December 21st  2016 Deri passed away peacefully at home with Leigh her daughter by her side.

Deri was someone very special and will be long remembered by everyone that knew her.


The Funeral service was on December 31st 2016 at St. Mary’s Church, Appledore which was a date that held a special meaning for Deri.


All donations went to the North Devon Children’s Hospice and St Mary’s Church, Appledore                

                       Terry Adams (Secretary)


In accordance with Deri’s wishes, the Trust is being wound down with all funds going to Rwanda to enable existing Trust funded students to complete their educational programmes.

The Trust would like to thank most sincerely everyone who has helped over the years. Through your generosity it has been possible to make such a big difference to the lives of the Rwandan people .
