Did you know these heartbreaking stats about Swaziland?

* Life expectancy. 28 years
* HIV infection rate. 44.6%
* 70% of kids will be HIV+ by 15 years old
* If you're 15 your chance of reaching 30 is 6%
* Unemployment rate is 60%
* 120,000 orphans. 12.6% of the population
* The population has declined from 1.3 milion in 2005 to 900,000 in 2009

You can help a child overcome these stats by sponsoring them thru Children's HopeChest. Visit Danielle Brower's blog to find out how:

It might mean you have to give up something to make this happen, but it will be a sacrifice you will never regret and one that is the answer to a child, parent grandmother, or some other caregiver's prayers. It will also be a reflection of the Father's heart, the same Father that said "pure religion is to care for the orphans and widows".
