Mission South Africa / Swaziland Reports
In June 2008, MannaRelief returned to South Africa and Swaziland with a 16 person team. During the trip they visited 21 Orphanages and touched the lives of over 1,100 children. With the love of God, they delivered dietary supplements to the orphans, including over 5,800 bottles of GlycoBears, 90 bottles of MannaBears and 320 tubs of Ambrotose.
The team ministered to lots of excited children through songs and puppet shows and were blessed with smiles and laughter while they handed out the dietary supplements. Every team member was deeply impacted by their experiences on this trip. Having now seen the suffering of the children first-hand they have a full understand of the need that exists in both South Africa and Swaziland. The team members realized this will be an unforgettable experience and a constant reminder of how blessed they really are.
You too can be blessed with the joy of giving an orphan hope! Please consider joining us on our next mission trip.

2007 September 26th
Recently MannaRelief visited these countries through our Missions program. Twenty six people, of which seventeen were teenagers representing Rebirth, had the awesome privilege of being able to visit/deliver product to 28 orphanages. We witnessed firsthand the children’s needs and we provided a generous amount of dietary supplements. The orphanage directors, caregivers, socialworkers, and ministry leaders expressed their gratitude for the nutritional support provided. Praise God! For all the volunteers who ventured on this trip to not only help deliver the much needed supplements but also to be a tangible extension of God’s love.
What a blessing it was to see the many smiles every where we went as the hundreds of kid’s faces lit up when the Global Rebirth team performed puppet shows and handed out the supplements plus much appreciated gifts. It is such a joy to not only supply nutritional support but also extend Christ’s love, peace and joy!
