CAPITAL OUTREACH: SWAZILAND
In 2007, Capital entered into a unique community-to-community partnership and became the sponsor of the Mkhombokati CarePoint in Swaziland, Africa. The focus of this ministry is building relationship and trust through which we have been privileged to watch the children grow and our mutual love grow for God and for each other.
Swaziland has the highest rate of HIV/AIDS in the world, wiping out an entire generation of adults. In a population of about a million people, there are over 150,000 orphans seeking food, refuge, and love. Our partnership, through Children’s HopeChest and supported on the ground by Adventures in Missions, supports the 200 children at Mkhomobkati every day to ensure that their medical, physical, educational, emotional, and spiritual needs are met. Generous individuals at Capital finance this through a child sponsorship program. It is our ultimate goal to see Mkhombokati grow to become self-sustaining, enhancing the lives of both the children and the community.
Capital sends Mission Teams to Mkhombokati each year and if you are interested in going you can start by filling out the following application here and returning it to the church office. The teams bring thousands of pounds of supplies, complete projects, teach about God’s word and heart, and spend time simply being the hands and feet of Jesus in any way they can, offering the simple gifts of hope, comfort, and love.
Through the generosity of the Capital community, Mkhombokati now has a kitchen, classroom, fence, toilet, water well, multipurpose building, soccer field, basketball pad, and greenhouse. The garden and greenhouse are harvested four times a year, feeding Mkhombokati community families. We also hosted our first medical clinic in the fall of 2016, beginning a critical step towards health management and education.
