A student from Waterford Kamhlaba college swimming with an orphaned child from ward 8 of the Government Hospital at Mbabane, Swaziland during a swimming trip for children born HIV+ as part of the college's community service programme which outreaches to local people affected by poverty and disease.

At the start of the 21st century, the country had the highest incidence per head of population of HIV/Aids in the world and and high levels of poverty mainly in rural areas where 75 per cent of the population lived.
