Prince Harry to visit Lesotho and South Africa
On Wednesday 27th February Prince Harry will spend the morning in the Maseru district of Lesotho visiting two of Sentebale’s community-based partners which care for children with disabilities and those whom are orphaned.
In the evening, the Sentebale Gala Dinner, kindly supported by Investec Asset Management will take place at Summer Place in Johannesburg, to mark the launch of Sentebale’s major capital fundraising programme to build the first permanent Mamohato Centre for children and young people.
The ‘Mamohato Centre – named after Prince Seeiso’s mother, Queen ‘Mamohato Bereng Seeiso – will be built on the sacred land of Thaba-Bosiu in Lesotho, known to many as the birthplace of the nation.
The facility will allow Sentebale to reach four times the number of children than before and will provide leading psychosocial care and peer mentoring for children and young people infected with or affected by HIV – removing the stigma attached to the disease, inspiring confidence, self-reliance and most importantly making a marked improvement in these young people’s quality of life.
Sentebale is hugely grateful to Investec Asset Management for supporting our event along with the following sponsors: Avios, Graham Beck Wines, Jordan Properties, Jordan Wine Estate, Legacy Hotels, Summer Place, Vicky Crease Catering & Events.
