Helping children to see, literally and figuratively
Miriam Hyman Memorial Trust

Miriam Hyman

Miriam was one of the 52 people killed in the "7/7" London bombings of 7th July 2005.

The Miriam Hyman Memorial Trust has two interrelated areas of work:

Miriam's memorial: The Miriam Hyman Children's Eye Care Centre (MHCECC) within the L V Prasad Eye Institute in Odisha, India. Miriam appreciated her own eye care services.

Miriam's legacy: Miriam's Vision: A Response to the 2005 London Bombings - a set of resources based on Miriam's story for teachers of 11- to 14-year-olds accessible at

Since 2008 the MHMT has supported the expansion of the MHCECC's services. Funds generated by the Business & Enterprise module of Miriam's Vision now support its Outreach Programme. Miriam's Vision makes reference to the MHCECC in five of its seven modules.

MHMT funds support the evaluation and expansion of Miriam's Vision.

Here is a short video about our work.
