The situation in Swaziland is worsening by the day. There are several things that you can do to help - you can raise awareness both locally and internationally or you can donate your time and money to help alleviate the suffering of ordinary Swazis.
There are many Swazis currently living in the UK. Can you imagine the message that would be sent out if just one percent of that number joined us outside the Swaziland High Commission every Saturday? The most important thing you can do to help Swaziland is to start getting involved, there has never been a more important time to stand up and be counted. Your country needs you!
Here are just some of the things you can do -
- Support the vigil – every Saturday outside the Swaziland High Commission (10.00 – 13.00)
- Make donations – The Swaziland Vigil exists entirely on donations from the public and well wishers. If you would like to make a donation please contact the Vigil Co-ordinator by clicking here. Thank you!
- Put pressure on government, EU & UN for stronger action
