The Work Of Prince Harry’s Charity Sentebale

A young boy, spattered with mud from making bricks takes a break from his work in eastern Maseru on July 9, 2008 in Maseru, Lesotho. The young boy lives with 34 other orphans in a project supported by the work of the charity Sentebale. Manufacturing bricks is a way the children are able to support themselves and generate an income.

Sentebale was founded by Prince Seeiso from the Lesotho Royal family and Prince Harry from the British Royal family in response to the plight of the neediest of Lesotho’s people – its orphans and vulnerable children. Lesotho is a country in desperate need of help, many of the adults have been wiped out by HIV/AIDS leaving a generation of over 380,000 orphans struggling to fend for themselves. The plight of the children in Lesotho is a priority for Prince Harry and his recent trip to the region has highlighted to the world the problems.
