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 :


  1. Providing palliative care expertise to support the medical staff caring for very sick children in hospitals
  2. Ensuring the child’s pain and symptoms are well managed
  3. Discussing options and planning for the best possible care as the disease progresses and then provide the necessary support for their decisions
  4. Providing compassionate and medical support for families to care for children at home
  5. Providing holistic care for the child and family which includes social, emotional and spiritual counselling and support
  6. 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.
