    Ithala Development Finance Corporation took time out this week to visit the Lower Umfolozi Regional War Memorial Hospital in Empangeni, north of Durban, and Prince Mshiyeni memorial hospital in Umlazi, south of Durban, to play Santa and delivered toys to little patients.

    In line with its mandate to promote development in KwaZulu-Natal, the provincial development agency is continuing the 57-year legacy of enriching the quality of life of historically-marginalised communities.

    “While the holiday season is officially upon us and year-end parties are in full swing, remember to spare a thought for those less fortunate than us. We can all make a difference to those around us in small but significant ways,” said Yvonne Zwane, Ithala Group Chief Executive.

    “Spending valuable time with the children provided an opportunity for self-reflection and we were humbled to have experienced how powerful a single act of kindness can be.

    Ithala has long been spearheading initiatives aimed at advancing youth and women and fulfilling the needs of individuals from early childhood development phase through to academia and employment.  Be it enterprise development, bursaries, internships or community programmes that educate and restore dignity to learners in rural schools, Ithala’s legacy is grounded on the premise that we were always there - we never turned our back on you.”
