FOR A HEALTHIER, BETTER INFORMED SOUTH AFRICA.
The Tobeka Madiba Zuma Foundation, first conceptualised in 2009, began operating in 2010 to provide a radically different approach to humanitarian outreach. The Patron, Madam Tobeka Madiba Zuma, who is passionate about the plight of the impoverished, has a vision to create a national organization that not only lends a helping hand to those in need, but does so in support of the government’s objectives towards achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals programme.
The TMZ Foundation regards cancer awareness, testing and screening, HIV/Aids testing and Tuberculosis screening through Health Education Programmes and other interventions as an effective means of improving the lives of South African people, especially those in rural communities.
“Women of South Africa are an inspiration. Every time I meet and talk to women across this beautiful rainbow nation of ours, I am both humbled by their strength and uplifted by their remarkable stories of courage and survival. It is a privilege to be a South African woman but also a responsibility, because in our genes is a call to be without equal”
– Madam Tobeka Zuma
