Partners

Shiselweni Reformed Home-Based Care is privileged to have a number of partners who are working together with us as we follow our dream to serve the great number of people in Swaziland suffering from the effects of HIV and AIDS.These partners come from a wide range. Some are churches or other organisations assisting us financially. Other organisations are more focused on helping us with information. Others are helping or have helped us with resources. These partners are playing an essential role to enable us to do even more in Swaziland and we want to honor those who made the decision to come alongside our ministry to enable us to increase our capacity.


Many of our partners have indicated that they do not want their names to be published. We respect their decision. Therefore, we are only listing the names of those partners who are working within the public sphere and who have their own websites available.


Mergon Foundation has the expansion of the Kingdom of God as its main vision. Through their financial assistance, we are in the process of giving all of our caregivers training in personal evangelism, making use of the EE III training material.

   

The Willow Creek Association, together with World Vision, initiated the Courageous Leadership Award. Prize money received through this award in 2008, enabled us to build a kitchen and eating area where orphans and other vulnerable children can receive food on a daily basis

The "Emmauskerk" in Amersfoort in the Netherlands is a small congregation with innovative ideas on how to collect money to assist our work. An exciting development is an inter-cultural study of parts of Scripture taking place between them and us, where we together do Bible Study via email.

   

The National Emergency Response Council on HIV/AIDS (NERCHA) is mandated by the Swaziland government to coordinate and facilitate the national multisectoral response to HIV/AIDS.

They are partnering with SHBC initially to assist with two feeding schemes, one at Dwaleni where 80 children receive food daily and another at Matsanjeni where around 60 children will receive food, as soon as a kitchen has been completed.
