    hope the destitude would get help instead of lip -service. Charity must begin at home. I stil fail to understand why SWAZILAND received so much money, what for when we are striken with disasters and taking ages to get helped. My house was divastated during storms in December 2009. I reported but never got a dime to help me out. I have lost hope in my own country. I am single mom with two girls at tertiary,and one at secondary school. Life shouldnt be so difficult. I hope this network could be of rescue.Fellow networkers please help my plight.
