The Swazi girls' message!
I wish my video was uploading, for some reason it is not....but instead, I will give you a taste of what it was like to visit some of the clinics and schools in Swaziland with more photos. We were always greeted so warmly. Here, the children's school day was over and they waited for us to arrive. I saw the traditional dress and couldn't wait for the performance. It was amazing to witness and even more amazing when the message was translated. This is not exact at all, but in general I was told that what the girls are singing is "Swazis are dying. HIV is killing us. We are the flowers of the community. We must make good choices". Even without a direct translation you can feel their desire to communicate the message and their hope. Enjoy a taste of the beauty of traditional Swaziland!
