A message from our supporters


“The KwaZulu Natal province has a high burden of infectious (in particular HIV and TB) and non-communicble diseases with over 3 million children. Acute and chronic life-threatening and life-limiting diseases pose a significant socioeconomic and emotional burden to children and their family support structures. Umduduzi has provided the support and care for children and their families through the hospice and in-patient support as the only dedicated provider of paediatric palliative care in KwaZulu Natal. Through their passion and compassion, they provide our “little” people with comfort and a voice.”
