The Denis Hurley Association UK

The Denis Hurley Association is a UK registered charity (Charity registration number 1146106). Donations from UK tax-payers are eligible for Gift Aid, a government subsidy to charities worth an additional 25 per cent.

Our aim is to keep the vision of Denis Hurley alive, and promote and raise funds for the Denis Hurley Centre in Durban, South Africa. All the money raised by the Denis Hurley Association goes directly to the work of the Denis Hurley Centre.

In the photo Dr Liz Reynolds (back row, first from left) and Dr Hannah Roberts (front row, second from left) are seen with the other staff and volunteers at the Denis Hurley Centre clinic. The two young doctors have been among several skilled volunteers from the UK who have given their time to work with us to help tend the needs of some of the poorest people in Durban.

Denis Hurley dedicated his life to the poor, the abandoned and the downtrodden. Like Pope Francis, he had a vision of the church on the margins, reaching out to welcome those who are often ignored, "a community serving humanity”. He fought tirelessly for an end to apartheid, and for equality among all human beings. He was a member of the Order of Mary Immaculate (OMI), and truly lived the words of the Oblate founder, St. Eugene de Mazenod, who called us to lead people to be "human beings first of all, then Christians, then saints.”

The Denis Hurley Association was launched formally in 2012 at Archbishop’s House, Westminster, with the support of Cardinal Vincent Nichols. Thanks to the help of generous UK supporters, we have raised a total of £120,709 (over R2 million) to September 2016, for the construction and fitting out of the new Denis Hurley Centre, opened in November 2015.

We continue to raise funds for the vital ongoing work of the Centre.
