Communities in Swaziland in Dire Need of Supplies

There is a unique opportunity to make a difference and alleviate poverty all the way over in Swaziland (Southern Africa). Many children and families live in extreme poverty.

Parents of many children living in poverty have died from AIDS and are being looked after by their old grandmothers far away from any cities or electricity. These grandmothers mostly have no income but are solely responsible for feeding and educating the children.

Cabrini Ministries has done a great job providing help to many of these families over in Swaziland. YOU too can help these poor children and families have a better life by donating supplies to help them meet life's basic needs.

Supplies Needed

Drop Off Location
Supplies will be shipped to Cabrini Ministries the first week of January. They can be dropped off at The Hemingway African Gallery at the Manhattan Arts and Antique Center. The address is 1050 Second Avenue, Gallery 96 & 97, New York, NY 10022. The gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and on Sunday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
