  Thin cattle, poor people.

Mbuluzi Clinic is a very rural clinic several kilometers outside Mbabane where The Salvation Army ran a clinic twice a week. We often found cattle in the clinic garden. The main purpose of the clinic was pre-and postnatal care, but it also did general work. Many of the people deep in the rural areas do not speak English, so it was a time of great trial to me as I have no ear for languages and never quite picked up a working knowledge of the SiSwati. We had to ford a river to get there so in bad weather the clinic was cancelled. All along the road to the Mbuluzi Clinic people simply waited for us to arrive and we treated them then and there. My weekly visits there gave me a feel for rural Swaziland.

Address: Mbuluzi.
Directions: Ask for directions after Sebebe Rock on Pine Valley Road. It is a gravel road turnoff, over a river and into the "bundu" (African veld).
othercontact: No phones, no internet, just cat
