Almost Half of All Pregnant Women in Swaziland Have HIV
A new survey shows that 42.6 percent of pregnant women in Swaziland have contracted
HIV/AIDS. In 2002, the number of pregnant women with the virus was 38.6 percent.

The Ministry of Health and Social Welfare is urging the country “to act urgently to reverse these rising
trends of HIV prevalence among pregnant women, and to protect the unborn children from infection, as
well as reach both women and men with care and treatment,” reports IRIN News.

Swaziland has the world’s highest HIV infection rate (39 percent). Experts point to polygamy, rape, sexual violence
and legal exploitation as the main causes of the HIV infection rate. Earlier this year, a United Nations Children’s
Fund (UNICEF) representative concluded that the quick spread of HIV/AIDS in the country is due to men’s
dominance over women and their use of laws, religions, and customs to justify male dominance. The ten countries
with the highest percentages of adults living with HIV/AIDS in the world are all in sub-Saharan Africa, where
patriarchy and poverty are deeply rooted.

Trade unionists have urged people to protest directly to Swaziland’s Chief of
Police against the abduction of student leaders earlier today (10 February 2010).

They want you to call the Swazi Police Commissioner Isaac Magagula directly on Tel: +268 404 2502; Mobile:
+268 606 2300 to register your concern and increase pressure for their release.

The call came in a statement from the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU).

The statement condemns the reported kidnapping of students in Swaziland by the state security forces this
morning at 10am. According to the Swaziland National Union of Students (SNUS), up to now their where abouts is
still not known.

Cosatu's statement continues.  This is related to the on-going class boycotts by the students which led to the
closure of the only University in the country and other five tertiary education institutions in the country which are
SCOT, William Pitcher, Ngwane Teacher Training College, Nazarene Teacher Training and Nursing College in the
past week.

This follows a brave show of courage and defiance by students under SNUS to challenge the oppressive regime
and defend their right to learn. The students have organised activities that have become known as the January
movement, wherein they ensured that they mobilise all students and the whole country around the need to defend
access to quality education for all and the urgency of democratising the country as part of transforming not only
education, but the entirety of Swazi society.

The demands of the students include:

*Registration of SNUS as the official voice of students,  
*Increase in personal allowances,
*Scrapping off the scholarship policy which is currently in draft form and denies many students from poor  
background the possibility of further education and training.
*Provision of free primary and quality education for all primary school pupils.

We are further told that here was a proposed meeting for the students of Swaziland where the state made all
efforts by using force to stop the meeting.

The message about today's arrests and disappearances came through while South African Civil society was
holding a meeting at the South African Council of Churches (SACC) headquarters in Johannesburg to receive
final report on preparations towards the historic launch of the Swaziland Democracy Campaign (SDC) taking place
next week between South African and Swazi organisations here in Johannesburg.

The meeting conveyed its profound solidarity and salutations to the students and urged them to soldier on,
knowing well that the world is fully behind them. The meeting went on to call upon South African organisations;
students, youth, churches, NGOs, trade unions, political parties and all social movements to join the call to do
something decisive in support of the suffering people of Swaziland. This confirmed the urgency of a global
campaign for democracy in Swaziland, hence the importance of the efforts underway to co-ordinate a sustained
and effective movement for a new and democratic Swaziland.

"Mission Possible"
Beyond The Game
Swaziland, Africa Mission Trip
We have partnered with Chanita Foster’s Charity Beyond the Game
& others to raise awareness and give support for a mission trip to
Swaziland, Africa on September 25, 2011!! Swaziland is one of two
small countries within the land mass of South Africa that is about the
size of  New Jersey with 950,000 people and one of the few
remaining African countries run by a King. They will over-night in
South Africa and drive 4 hours to Swaziland. Swaziland is a  place of
GREAT need. If AIDS statistics do not change, the country will cease
to exist by 2050.

Here are a few statistics about Swazi:

-The average life expectancy is 28.7 years.

-70% of children will be HIV positive by the time they are age 15

-56% of school age children are not in school because they cannot afford
school  fees (school is very inexpensive)

-Unemployment rate of 60%

-There are 120,000 orphans - 12.6 of the

-Population HIV infection rate is 44.6%

Despite their horrific circumstances, the Swazi people are gracious and
extremely kind. They are beautiful people. The children are happy and
joyful even though they have little to nothing to live on.

What they will do:  

They will be visiting several different Care Points in different stages of
development. A care point is a designated land area where orphans go to
because they know they will receive a meal each day. Some children walk
several miles each way to get to a care point. Some care points have
playgrounds; some have a building for cooking, some cook out in the open
air. The most developed care point has a building where kids are schooled
in.  Most are very primitive. They will also have a chance to do some home
visits and interact with families in different stages of need.

How can you help?

They are asking for in-kind donations (see list below) and/or a monetary
donation.  If it’s on your heart you may write a check for the amount God
puts on your heart. Checks can be written to “Beyond The Game” and it is
a tax write off! Checks can be mailed to Beyond the Game Chanita Foster
Po Box 311397 Atlanta, GA 31131. or Online donations, click on link: http:

the orphans and widows. The follow is an in-kind list of items being
requested.
