Prince Harry makes a documentary about the AIDS-stricken nation of Lesotho
Prince Harry has raised awareness of the impoverished AIDS-stricken nation of Lesotho in a television documentary.
In “The Forgotten Kingdom – Prince Harry in Lesotho”, the Prince draws attention to issues facing the developing countries of the world, including access to education, AIDS and poverty.
The film was recorded earlier this year when Harry was working with various charities and organisations in Lesotho as part of his gap year.
A Clarence House spokesman said: “Harry wanted to go to Lesotho to learn more about the problems faced in a country dealing with AIDS and to do what he could to help. "He was very much affected by the experiences there and by the people he met. He hopes that his visit, and now this film, will help to raise awareness and money to help tackle the problems faced by the people of Lesotho."
It is hoped that international sales of the documentary will help raise money for the people of Lesotho, and a special appeal fund has been launched with the British Red Cross, of which The Prince of Wales is President. Filmed during Harry’s eight week visit in February and March this year, the programme covers some of the projects which Harry was involved in, including the Mants’ase Orphanage near Mohale’s Hoek and other initiatives helping orphans, disadvantaged children.
The programme includes interviews with Harry, Prince Seeiso, the younger brother of King Letsie III who helped organise the trip, as well as doctors and aid workers. It also includes footage shot by Harry himself on his video camera.
On a return surprise visit earlier this month, Prince Harry was delighted to find several improvements have already taken place at the Mants’ase Orphanage, including a number of donations such as solar panels for electricity, perimeter fencing, beds and mattresses, oil heaters and carpets. Prince Harry also visited Liketso, a 10-month-old victim of abuse, who had improved much since the last time he saw her.
