Swaziland



Here is a video by another group in Swaziland. Children's Hope Chest has a carepoint right across from the dump you see in it.

Anna's team spent a few days at that carepoint. She said that when the garbage trucks would come and dump a new load of rubbish, the children would leave and run across the busy road (a 4 lane bypass) to get there quickly...often darting right in front of trucks and cars. Then they'd eventually wander back over often eating food they had scavaged out of the dump.

Our team also visited that dump and met those kids and their teachers back in 2008. They are truly among the poorest of the poor, living in a squatter's "village" on the outskirts of Manzini.
