Cheshire Homes of Swaziland

Cheshire Homes Swaziland, established in 1986, is the only rehabilitative centre for adults and children in the country. It is a registered non-governmental and non profit making organization. Relying solely on donations and fundraising efforts, Cheshire Homes of Swaziland provides vital rehabilitative services to hundreds of people. Our work is encapsulated in our mission of providing comprehensive rehabilitative services which are accessible, appropriate and affordable to all people with a disability. LIVING WITH A DISABILITY IN SWAZILAND. It is estimated there are more than 115,000 people living with a disability in Swaziland, or 10% of the total population. This figure continues to increase due to the incidence of chronic disease, injuries, car crashes and violence. The situation is further compromised by Swaziland having the highest rate of HIV in the world. Living with a disability in Swaziland presents significant challenges. There is a general belief that those who have a disability are bewitched or inflicted by bad spirits. Many believe that being around people with a disability can bring bad luck. As a result, many people with disabilities are hidden in their homesteads and are not given an opportunity to participate and contribute to society.
