How you can help us.

As we provide a free service to our patients, these services need to be supported.

A large and comprehensive support structure exists to ensure that our patients receive the best care we are able to deliver.

The main activities here are fund raising activities and these consist of the following.

Retail: Our retail activities generate a significant portion of our monthly income which is then used to support patient care and other administrative functions within Msunduzi Hospice. All the items sold in our three shops have been donated by the generous members of the wider community of Pietermaritzburg. These items have been lovingly cared for by you, our supporters, and we truly appreciate every donation that we receive. We have three shops from which the donated items can be purchased – a clothing shop, a bric-a-brac shop and a book shop. All our shops are well supported by the community and we encourage you pay us a visit.

Events: Msunduzi Hospice hosts a number of fantastic, fun filled events during the year which also contribute towards our income. These events range from fairs, to wine tasting to formal dinners. Please like our Facebook page and sign up on our mailing list for timely notification of these events and all the details. Show your support and help us to continue to provide our much needed care.

Please visit our Facebook page to keep up to date with events.

Grant/proposal writing: Msunduzi Hospice relies not only on the generosity of members of the community, but we also approach business to support our care services. Formal proposals are developed and submitted to a number of businesses locally and internationally wherein we request specific funding to continue our operations. Our thanks to those many organisations, companies, trusts who support us. Various documents are available on request from the office (e.g. Audited financials, statistical reports, etc.) please complete the message form with the details of the documents requested and we will respond via e-mail within a week.

Telemarketing: We have a small telemarketing programme that we administer ourselves. At the moment this is operated by a volunteer in order to keep down the associated costs. Your support, if and when you are approached, would be appreciated. We remain grateful for those who make regular donations in support of Msunduzi Hospice.

Volunteers form an integral aspect of our activities here at Hospice and if you are interested in assisting as a volunteer please contact the PA who will set up an appointment for you.
