Africa → Lesotho
The Kingdom of Lesotho is a tiny but incredibly beautiful country hidden high in the mountains above South Africa. The proud nation boasts a rich cultural heritage and dramatic scenery; including some of the highest waterfalls in the world.
The country is also one of the poorest in the world and suffers from one of the highest HIV/AIDS infection rates on the planet.
Almost 25% of the population is HIV positive and over 130,000 children have been orphaned by the disease, which has had a devastating impact on family and community structures and held back the nation’s economic development.
