Prince Harry cares for HIV/Aids orphans
Princess Diana's youngest son, Harry, will soon carry on her legacy by visiting Africa.
Diana was well known for her passion and dedication shown to those who were suffering.
Harry is travelling to Africa on behalf of the charity he set up in memory of his late mother.

The prince will spend three days in Lesotho and South Africa from 25 till 27 this month, meeting vulnerable children affected by HIV/Aids for his charity, Sentebale.

He will also make private visits to the Kananelo Centre for the Deaf in Lesotho and the Reitumetse Church Project which provides clean water and housing for people in need.

On his final day he will be the guest of honour at the Sentebale Gala Dinner in Summer Palace, Johannesburg where he will give a speech before dinner.

The gala marks the launch of a fundraising campaign for a centre which will enable the charity to reach four times the number of children than before.

Harry, 28, founded Sentebale in 2006 with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in memory of their late mothers.

Its name means “Forget me Not” in the language of Lesotho - a small landlocked country surrounded by South Africa.

The prince last visited the country in June 2010 on a joint overseas tour with his brother William.

Prince Seeiso and Harry are close friends, with Seeiso recently observing: “You know the odd thing about being the second brothers, we are always slightly in the shadow of our elder brothers and sadly or unfortunately for the both us are seemingly both goody goodies.... and we seem to catch the attention for the wrong reasons.”

After saying during frank interviews in Afghanistan that the “Army comes first”, on his return to the UK Harry said he was keen to make as much time for his charities as possible.
