Cabrini Ministries is a faith-based and community-based nonprofit organization working in the Lubombo lowveld of Swaziland. Its mission is to provide comprehensive care for those infected with and affected by HIV, AIDS and TB in the rural chiefdoms of Ngcamphalala, Mamba, and Gamedze. Cabrini has been in these chiefdoms since 1971 responding to the most pressing needs of the communities.

Despite the many challenges, Cabrini is bringing about its vision of “Restoring Life.”
