Swaziland (a little tiny country in South Africa) used to have a population of 1.3 million people now it only has 850,000 due to the AIDS epidemic and of that 130,000 are orphaned and of that, the average age of care takers is 11 years old, and of the 130,000 orphans only 600 of children are in an actual orphanage. wow and i am just sitting comfortably on my couch. this is just one tiny place in the whole spectrum of the world. i really desire to be hugging on orphans, like this sweet girl who is an orphan because her mother died of AIDS!
