Our History

Comfort for Africa was founded in 2011 under the name Swaziland Relief. For many years, Swaziland Relief operated as an organic partnership between Swazis and Americans, who understand that even as Swaziland (now called eSwatini) was facing a dire situation there is hope. The coalition of volunteers who comprised Swaziland Relief worked to provide short-term relief such as medicine, food, and clothing, while laying the groundwork for long-term recovery through programs focusing on spiritual growth, economic stimulus, and education.

In 2018, Swaziland Relief changed the name of our organization to Comfort for Africa. Comfort for Africa has continued partnering with indigenous churches in the areas of discipleship, education, and community development.
