A Storming idea for Swaziland.
Not wanting to do things by halves.... I've come up with a cunning plan to raise a good amount of revenue for Swaziland over the Christmas period.
Watch this space.. hopefully things should be up and running by tomorrow.
The little lad in the photo contracted AIDS after his father died and he was left to care for his dying mother - the cross infections, lack of hygiene, open sores are a problem for the most vigilant clinician. How awful to think that a child should have to care for a dying parent without resource, training or equipment. What a dreadful reward in return for care.
We really need to do something.
There are scores of children in life threatening conditions in Swaziland, the lucky ones can be cared for at the Hawane project. The cost of building a childrens home to house 8 - 10 children? £7,500. That's £750 for a child's life. It's impossible to see this and not break down. It's incredible to see children plucked from that situation, loved, cared for and happy. We really can help. PLEASE re-visit and pass this link onto as many folks as you can.
