Prince Harry is to become the benefactor of charity

Prince Harry has been assigned founder of MapAction and WellChild charities. And this is not his first charitable organizations. He already established charitable fund Sentebale (what means "Forget me not") in Lesotho (southern Africa), in commemoration of his mother, Princess Diana. The mission of Sentebale is to help Aids orphans. Prince says: “I want to continue my mother’s (Diana) work. And Lesotho is the best place for it.” Every day in Lesotho about 70 people die from AIDS.

Prince Harry has been visited Lesotho for several times. “We are going to work here, will start with small projects. “When you return to England – you just live, when you get back to places like these- you understand how lucky you are”, according to Prince Harry words. Charitable fund is supposed to provide long-term support and assistance to new projects. Orphan-asylum and project for joint harvest got more than 1 million Pounds (over 2 million $).

MapAction supplies urgent mapping to aid agencies in the case of natural and humanitarian disasters. MapAction staff worked across the world, including Lesotho, Sri Lanka suffered from tsunami as well as in other countries. In October 2007, MapAction finished its first 50 missions. Prince Harry, the charity's Royal Patron, attended this important event. About 140 guests and members of MapAction got together at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (in London) due to this occasion.

WellChild offers help and nursing care to sick children with chronic-illness living at home and their families, giving useful solutions to various issues through investigation, support and encouragement. They aimed at discovering the ways to prevent the spread of childhood disease, finding the means to cure childhood illness and to advance the treatment and care of sick children.

Prince Harry is the first royal patron for all three charities.

Dr Carl Clowes, the charity president, thanked Prince Harry for his enthusiasm and responsibility towards people, great support and essential contribution.
