Prince Harry Spends Day With Lesotho Orphans
November 6, 2007
On Friday in remote western Lesotho, Britain's Prince Harry visited with AIDS orphans under the care of a charity he founded in memory of his late mother, Princess Diana. About 100 orphans live at the facility. The Sentable project, the name means "forget me not" in the local seSotho language, is headed by Harry and Lesotho's Prince Seeiso. This was Harry's fifth visit to the mountainous, landlocked kingdom, where he spent two months working with children in 2004. At that time, Harry made a TV documentary detailing the plight of orphans in Lesotho, where more than 100,000 children have lost one or both parents to AIDS.
