Health care stories
Love and compassion in action
The health care team specialises in running rural clinics, supporting the ICBC community developments, providing first aid training and basic hygiene education. They work closely with HIV/AIDS related illnesses, common sicknesses, nutrition, and hygiene. The clinics provide medical care and advice and referrals to partner organisations run alongside prayer and pastoral counsel.
A major vision for the health care team within Challenge Ministries Swaziland, is to train and equip, build up and empower local Swazi volunteers from within their own communities to reach the sick, orphaned, widowed and vulnerable within their own communities. These are known as our Compassionate Care Teams. Food parcels and ‘Pamper days for Gogos’ (Grandmothers) are some of the other ways the Health Care Team bless the people they serve. The team helps to alleviate the suffering of those in poverty, children orphaned by AIDS and widows in their crippling old age who are caring for orphans. Their vision is to bring transformation to communities through caring for the most sick and vulnerable.
To COMPASSIONATELY WIN SWAZILAND preserve the future christ being lived out amongst communities through partnering with like-minded individuals, churches and organizations; to TRAIN up a remnant to preserve the future by becoming an accurate representation of Christ being lived out amongst communities; to SEND out empowered believers from a restored Swaziland to a world in need.
How can you help?
With many elderly travelling great distances on foot to attend a health clinic, the new mobile clinic enables the team to take the care, medical supplies and education into the heart of Swaziland. You can help by supporting the cost of running these clinics.
By sending or bringing basic medical supplies such as bandages, gloves, paracetamol, multi-vitamins or other over the counter medications to help in treating patients.
Making a donation to cover costs of food parcels, hospital travel and treatment when people might need it most, can literally give life to someone.
