Donate to Umduduzi

Umduduzi offers all our services within the many communities we serve completely free of charge, thus we are 100% dependent on sponsorship and donations to run our programmes. We rely on the generosity of our donors to enable us to carry out the important work we do bringing comfort and relief to the children of Durban and surrounding areas living with life-threatening or life-limiting illnesses and their families.

What do you do with the money I donate?

Every donation enables members of the Umduduzi Team to continue doing the vital work we do every day such as

  • providing palliative care expertise to support the medical staff caring for very sick children in hospitals
  • ensuring the child’s pain and symptoms are well managed
  • discussing options and planning for the best possible care as the disease progresses and then provide the necessary support for their decisions
  • providing compassionate and medical support for families to care for children at home
  • providing holistic care for the child and family which includes social, emotional and spiritual counselling and support
  • keeping our two play programmes at King Dinuzulu and Prince Mshiyeni Hospitals running

The Umduduzi Team consists of a medical doctor qualified in paediatric palliative care, a medical social worker, a nurse, a counsellor/translator and two early childhood education/playgroup coordinators.

We are incredibly grateful for any help and support you may wish to provide. We are a fully registered and accredited Not for Profit and Public Benefit Organisation and our annual financial records are available on request. As a small and accountable team we are always happy to discuss our work and finances with you.

Are my donations tax deductible?

As a registered Public Benefit Organization, your donations are fully tax deductible. Our SARS PBO number is 930046273.  Should you require a Section 18A certificate, please email us on to request one and it will be sent to you on receipt of your donation.

3  Join our 100 Club and donate R100 (or more) a month via debit order

As Umduduzi is fully dependent on sponsorship and donations to run our programmes, we need to know that a regular amount of money can be relied upon each month. This not only enables us to do what we do best, it also takes some of the burden off our shoulders of constantly having to find new ways to fundraise. We need in the region of R100 000 every month to cover our costs, which can sometimes feel like an overwhelming amount for our small team to raise.
We hope you will consider becoming a member of our 100 Club of supporters – that someone we can rely on to help us cover our monthly costs.  If we could get 1000 people to donate just R100 a month, we could rest easy at night knowing that we will always be there for the children in KZN with palliative care needs and their families.

To this end we invite individuals, couples, families and businesses to join our 100 Club sponsorship programme and contribute to the monthly running costs. To find out more and to sign up to this programme.
