Home ‘New’ Home (pt 4)

Remember our ‘Home New Home’ blog series? If not check out the previous entries first (Home ‘New’ Home Pt 1, 2 and 3) in the archive section.Before we left Swaziland in June 2012 we decided to have a house warming party for Make Mamba and her family. It was so much fun – we had dancing, sweet treats, drinks and presents. Occasionally some of the girls performed gymnastics (no participation was done by us… just admiration).

Some special gifts from Australia were given specifically for Make Mamba’s family by a lovely lady whose heart was touched upon hearing about this particular family’s story.

Here are some more pics from the day…

Make Mamba and her family’s lives have been transformed – from sleeping on the mud floor in a broken and falling apart thatched roof hut, to enjoying the warmth, comfort and security of a 2 room brick home.Our journey with this family continues. Together we plan to come up with a sustainable way forward that will see this family become strong, healthy and able to meet their own basic needs.
