Ways to support us

As for companies, they’re realizing a new normal as well. In the ‘80s, Gordon Gekko preached that greed is good. But these days, giving is good.

There are numerous ways for your company can rally behind the valuable work of Umduduzi – Hospice Care for Children. Associate your brand with compassion and care and we will put your logo on our website.

Be part of the conversation

We are willing to present to management and staff of any company on the work of Umduduzi in person or via Zoom

Through your corporate networks we can start talking about relieving health-related suffering in children and every patient’s right to access palliative care. Every opportunity to engage with your consumers brings your company increased exposure and can raise awareness of our essential work.

Sponsor a staff member’s post

Imagine “The Your Company Name Palliative Care Nurse” Or “The Your Company Name Play Programme Co-ordinator”.

By sponsoring the salary of a staff member in full or in part, your company could assist us in reaching more children and families that require palliative care.

Keep us on the road.

We call in at the hospitals in and around eThekwini almost every day and make regular home visits to our patients, many of whom live in remote rural villages in our beautiful province.  

By sponsoring our monthly petrol costs you will help to keep our wheels on the road.

In-kind donations

As an organisation that has administrative needs, runs 2 play programs and cares for children from impoverished communities we are always in need of the following:

  • Office supplies
  • Wipeable toys – wooden or plastic
  • School stationery including colouring in books, crayons, paints
  • Non-perishable food items for food parcels
  • Children’s clothing and toiletries
  • Prams (previously loved)
  • Disposable nappies

Get your team involved

With the current financial climate, Umduduzi runs a very lean and tight ship, ensuring almost all our funding is spent on providing services to children in need. As a result, we could benefit from assistance with social media, marketing and fundraising. Please contact us if you have a team member that could help.
