The PMHP is a non-profit entity and we need funding to do our work. Your donation will help us build a more positive future for women, their children and the communities in which they live.

Donations to the PMHP are tax exempt. They are made via the University of Cape Town (UCT) Development and Alumni Department. All donations are earmarked and transferred to the PMHP in their entirety, and tax certificates are issued to all donors accordingly.
