About Us > Our Funders in 2013


We are extremely grateful to all of our donors both here and abroad. Their support has made it possible for UVHAA to continue providing services in 2013 and 2014 in accordance with our Vision and Mission statements.

The Home Based Care programme has been funded by the following organisations:

The Stephen Lewis Foundation continued to support our programmes until the beginning of 2012, and subsequently agreed to fund Community Based Groups directly.  From March 2013 the Foundation directly funded the Siyanqoba Community Support Group for the areas of Mkhunya, KwaJoni and Dududu

The SAGA Charitable Trust UK  funded  the Home Based Care Programme in Umdoni North directly to the Amandawe Community Care Centre with UVHAA acting as a mentoring and support organisation from April 2011.  From March 2013 the Stephen Lewis Foundation also funded the Amandawe Community Care Centre for the areas of Amandawe, KwaCele and Amahlongwa. This is in keeping with the UVHAA strategic plan of handing over programmes to Community Based Organisations wherever possible.

The National Lotteries Board provided a grant of R603,646.  This provided for the purchase of a new vehicle and administration support and training.  It also supported the extension of the Amadoda Aqotho programme, paid stipends to Careworkers and further provided material support to the HBC programme.

Atlantic Philanthropies has supported general administration and transport for the projects.

Basingstoke and Downham Market Rotary clubs in the UK have supported the Amandawe Centre with funds for the renovations of the centre.

SANTA Scottburgh have continued to support the programme with training and food parcels on a monthly basis. They have also supported the Amadoda Aqotho project in Amandawe.

The Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) programme has been funded by the following organisations:

  • R30,000 from SAPPI Saiccor
  • R20,00 from the Holmes Chapel Combined School  in the UK; this is administered by Scottburgh High School.

 Funding has also come from the following organisations for the welfare of the children:

  • Blue Marlin Hotel in Scottburgh and their guests
  • St. Paul's Anglican Church of Scottburgh
  •  Robyn Mann and family for regular payments from England
  • The establishment of a library at the Robert Mbili Community Centre was made possible by a generous donation from Dr. David Palmer, a founder and Honorary member of UVHAA. Much hard worker by David’s grandson Tom has turned this dream into reality.
  • McMillan books for donation of 450 Zulu books for children.
