Prince Harry has shared photos that he took on his recent trip to Lesotho in South Africa with the children’s charity that he and his friend Prince Seeiso set up, Sentebale. The Prince sure was a hit with the little ones, and has an eye for photography as his portraits show.
The Prince donned a Santa hat and was snapped playing and laughing with the children, allwho are living with disadvantage, disability and HIV.
Not that you would know this by looking at their smiling faces. As Prince Harry noted of the children that he met in captions underneath some of the photographs he took himself,
"These are children who have never had the chance to talk about their illness, and who had no idea that they were one of so many in their age group. It was really emotional watching them interact with each other. Some really outgoing chatty kids, others slightly overwhelmed, but all with huge smiles. This confirmed to me again that what we’re doing is going to change thousands of children’s lives, and hopefully save a generation," Prince Harry said.
Prince Harry visitied the Mamohato Children’s centre in the area which offers health care, education and psycholotogocal support to vulnerable children. Harry also visited a number of workshops and activities aimed at helping children living with HIV to develop their confidence and self-esteem.
The CEO of Sentebale, Cathy Ferrier, said of Harry’s visit,
"This visit was a great opportunity for Prince Harry to revisit Sentebale’s work in country, meet the children and see the positive impact of our programmes. He also had a chance to put his personal input to the next phase of the building of the Mamohato Children's Centre. All the team at Sentebale are excited to see the plans for the new children's centre coming to life and are looking forward to the opening in 2015. We can't wait!"
