Sentebale to host Christmas Carol Service
“Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.” ― Laura Ingalls Wilder

Funds raised from the Sentebale Christmas Carol Service will go to providing healthcare and education to some of the most vulnerable children in Lesotho, South Africa, like Lerato.
Lerato, which means ‘love’ in Sesotho (the language spoken in Lesotho), had a bleak start in life. Found by the police on his dead mother’s breast and with no other family members to care for him, Lerato was brought to a centre caring for vulnerable children in one of Lesotho’s districts. His mother was believed to have died from AIDS and Lerato was thought to have been there for a couple of days before being found.
Thanks to the centre, which receives grants and management support from Sentebale, Lerato, who is HIV-positive and now believed to be five years old, has been nurtured back to life. Receiving his medication and regular meals, he attends nursery school and on the whole is a happy young boy with friends and housemothers to care for him.
