    Umduduzi was founded in December 2012 by Dr Julia Ambler & Ms Tracey Brand. Both had been providing children’s palliative care services to the State sector within KwaZulu-Natal between 2008 and 2012 through their work with The Bigshoes Foundation’s Durban office. Unfortunately The Bigshoes Foundation was dissolved nationally and Julia & Tracey felt it was imperative to continue the work that had been started.

    Together with a team of committed Board Members Umduduzi was founded. The work that began will continue and children living with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses will have the opportunity to be cared for by a dedicated team of specialists.
