The Miriam Hyman Memorial Trust is in memory of Miriam, one of the fifty-two people killed in the "7/7" London bombings of 7 July 2005. Her family and friends set up the MHMT in 2008.
The Miriam Hyman Children's Eye Care Centre was opened in 2008 in Odisha India. This is a living memorial; a place of hope, healing and rehabilitation for children who need eye care services, irrespective of the ability to pay.
Since then, The MHMT, in partnership with Copthall School, North London, and the Institute of Education has developed a programme to support secondary school teachers to deal with the London bombings in a non-confrontational way. Teachers will be able to access lesson plans from a dedicated website, together with guidance notes, video footage, photographs and interviews to enable them to roll out the programme in schools in the UK. Students will learn life skills to deal with adversity, experience a new culture and participate in building an inclusive and safe society.
