CarePoint Highlight: Mbekelweni

CarePoint Highlight: Mbekelweni

Halle Erwin
19 April 2019


Mbekelweni is located in a grassy area between the mountains and the valley, close to the major industrial site of the country of eSwatini in Africa.

The majority of adult community members are working in factories. Thankfully, most necessities are accessible, such as clinics, schools, churches, and shops. While some homesteads have small gardens and farms, there are not many used for commercial purposes.

The CarePoint here is a beacon of hope for the community. In addition to the standard CarePoint, this community is home to our “I Am Not Forgotten” home—a place that provides 24-hour care for children who have either been orphaned, abandoned, or removed from dire situations.

Care at the IANF home includes meeting physical needs such as food, clothing, and dormitories. It also includes tuition and uniform fees for public school.

In Mbekelweni, teenagers can attend Economic Empowerment classes to prepare them for job placement after high school, as well. Since many of the children come from difficult situations, trauma and medical care is also provided as needed by a licensed nurse or social worker.

As is with all Children’s Cup initiatives, discipleship is the core of everything given to the child – teaching them Jesus rescues, heals, and restores!
