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