the storms aren’t helping in eSwatini – Swaziland

Our partners in Swaziland, All Out Africa, are working hard to distribute food and soap in the poorest communities where they work ….whilst the rains are normally welcome they are a challenge now!

This just in……

‘Despite terrible road conditions after recents storms, we made our delivery target to 24 families today that are run by either elderly grandparents or children as young as 14 years old. Their homes are run down and lacking basic needs, built in out of reach mountain sides, but fully cautious and sensitized to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was an interesting experience arriving at these homesteads expecting to deflect a handshake as we friendly Swazis love to do, only to be told to stand at a distance. Proud moment. All the families express their extreme gratitude for your assistance. Thank you All Out Africa Friends

We are very proud of the All Out Team and recognise how strong we are, and the value of each member of our family. We hope that the steps that we have taken help towards efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus as well as keeping everyone safe. We look forward to guests joining us again when borders are open and it’s deemed safe to travel. Stay safe everyone.

We are very concerned as you would imagine, about our communities and have started a fundraiser on Global Giving so we can distribute food, soap and sanitizer and educate on the pandemic.’ www.globalgiving.org/fundraisers/savethecommunity/
