Mater Populi Hospice

If Jesus stood at the door of the Usizo Lwethu (our help) Clinic needing your donation, would you make it right now?

Our Lord identified with what it is like to be a stranger, sick, or even in prison. And He's led us to understand that when we respond to people in these situations, we are responding to Him.

If you can see Jesus in every patient who comes to Usizo Lwethu for help, then please act now to bring them health and healing through vital Tuberculosis screening equipment and a CD4-count machine.


Situated in the 'inner city mission' at Emmanuel Cathedral in the busy heart of Durban, the clinic serves people who are poor, homeless or elderly ... orphaned and vulnerable children ... refugees from all over Africa ... and those with HIV and AIDS.

In charge is Kimoto Kungwa, a refugee himself from the Democratic Republic of Congo, who has two degrees and is an accredited graduate of the College of Nursing sciences.

His passion is healthcare – especially in disadvantaged communities – and he has turned Usizo Lwethu Clinic into a true haven for 'forgotten people' who are sick and have no means to pay for medical help.

But compassion, skill and knowledge are not enough. Kimoto urgently needs medical supplies and special equipment to diagnose TB – still rife in our country – and to check and monitor AIDS patients' CD4 blood count levels.


If you are lucky enough to have access to first class medical help, please will you reach out now to patients whose only hope is this humble clinic run by the Catholic Church?

Your gift made right here and now will bring health and healing to people living on our City streets ... and could even save a life.

So please be as generous as you can. And if you or a member of your family is ill and needs our prayers, please click here to request special intentions to be included in our monthly Mass for Mission friends.
