Charity group seeking 500 sponsors for Swazi children

TAIPEI -- A Taiwanese social welfare organization launched a campaign Monday that it hopes will recruit 500 sponsors to provide material aid for impoverished children in the southern African country of Swaziland.

The Taiwan Fund for Children and Families (TFCF) said that each sponsor will be responsible for an NT$700 (US$24) contribution each month to ensure basic day-to-day necessities for the children.

At present, 63 percent of Swaziland's 1.4 million people live below the poverty line, the group said.
