You Are Making A Difference
Swaziland (now known as eSwatini) continues to have the highest HIV/AIDS rate in the world (26% of the adult population is infected). The Home Based Care team continues to provide medical care, medications, emergency food, and advocacy to the poorest and sickest Swazi people in the Lubombo region.
We are blessed to be able to continue working with this team and be able to share the gifts you continue to donate in order to reduce suffering and improve quality of life.
Your generosity helps to provide individuals with compassionate care, but it has also impacted sustainable change. Teaching, support, advocacy and training has helped reduce the HIV rate from 42% in 2001 to 26%, and improve the lives of many people. Drug resistant TB, high incidence of cancer, uncontrolled diabetes, poverty, poor nutrition and lack of clean water are constant challenges.
But with your support we have been able to start a Palliative Care program and educate nurses. Your gifts have helped build houses, dig pit latrines, supply water tanks, plant gardens, pay school fees, and assist with advanced medical interventions.
There continues to be a light at the end of the tunnel thanks to you.
We hope you will continue to help the people in eSwatini and you can be assured that all of us on the HBC team and the patients who benefit from your kindness will continue to be forever grateful.
