His Majesty, King Goodwill Zwelithini | UCF Patron
His Majesty’s support to the Foundation dates back from the late 1990s. On 03 July 1999, His Majesty officially unveiled a plaque at the Foundation’s offices in Richards Bay. Over the years, His Majesty has never failed to attend the Foundation’s Annual General Meetings (AGMs), to encourage donor individuals and organisations to continue to support the Foundation.
Apart from lending support at the Foundation’s AGMs, His Majesty also helps advertise the Foundation wherever he addresses communities on strategies for sustained community development and strict adherence to principles of public accountability and ethics. He continues to refer other needy communities to the Foundation for couching, guidance and advice. These engagements have resulted in establishment of a Community Foundation in his hometown: Nongoma. The name of the Foundation is: Nongoma Community Foundation (NCF).
