Survivors Fund (SURF) is rebuilding the lives of survivors of the Rwandan genocide. All our work is informed and underpinned by four guiding principles. SURF is:
- Committed over the long term to survivors and partners in Rwanda and the UK.
- Independent and flexible in its response to the priorities of survivors.
- Identifying activities to fund that are high impact and sustainable.
- Building the capacity of its partners to deliver programmes.

  • Mission statement

    SURF exists to promote the needs of survivors of the Rwandan genocide, to support their own efforts at rebuilding their lives and to ensure that the lessons of the 1994 genocide are not forgotten.

    Since 1997, SURF has been helping survivors rebuild a sense of self and trust in humanity through projects including supporting medical care for women survivors with HIV/AIDS, counselling for survivors and home building for orphans. Its projects are delivered through an array of local partners.
