    Weʼve raised £1,079 to replace Cyril's stolen photo equipment

    Funded on Tuesday, 24th March 2020

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Cyril Ndegeya is a professional photojournalist from Rwanda and a Friend of AviAssist. He works really hard to earn his stripes in aviation, one day hoping to become a professional aviator in his home country Rwanda. He is a professional sales volunteer for the AviAsssist Foundation. Want to see some of Cyril's work? Have a look at his Flickr photostream for a selection of his stunning work.

    During his visit to the Netherlands on the 20th of November to attend the Friends of AviAssist symposium and take pictures for us, his bag with Canon 5D Mark III camera & his MacBook laptop as well as a number of hard drives were stolen. As you can imagine this is a tremendous set back for Cyril and also hard to replace.

    We feel ashamed of his ordeal and would love to assist him in getting back on track.

    Replacing Cyril's photo camera and lenses will cost around £2,500 and a replacement MacBook Pro costs around £1,000. We have agreed that any excess funding will go towards the work of Friends of AviAssist.

    All proceeds that we receive will go towards the goal with no funds used for any administration costs involved.

      Hey all you lovely people out there! Just a quick update on the campaign. We have handed Cyril a cheque of 1,225 Euros at the Aviation Africa 2020 conference last week in Ethiopia. We are keeping the campaign open for a bit longer, also because we are paying attention to it in the next edition of our SafetyFocus magazine (for a previous edition see: ) - we'd happily add you as a recipient of a hard copy of the magazine if you want - just let us know. So tell all about it!!! In appreciation for your support, Thanks!

      We' ve just passed 10% in less than 24 hours - great stuff! Let's keep spreading the word in your networks so we can hit 30% tomorrow at this time. In appreciation for your support so far, here's one of Cyril's great pictures, taken with the camera that was stolen last week. This is in the Rusizi - Karongi area in Rwanda.
