  Prince Harry helps Aids orphans
Updated 03 March 2004, 14.29
Harry helps out at the orphanage
Prince Harry has been highlighting the plight of Aids orphans on a visit to the little-known African mountain kingdom of Lesotho.

Around a third of the country's two million residents are infected with Aids or HIV. The country is also plagued by drought and food shortages.

"Lesotho is not a country that is well-known, but it needs all the help it can get," said the 19-year-old.

Harry visited an orphanage and joined a doctor on his rounds of HIV patients.

Harry is touring the south African country on the latest leg of his gap year adventure.

He has already been on a three-month visit to Australia, where he worked on a ranch.

The prince has helped to build a clinic and road bridge during his trip to Lesotho.

He is spending eight weeks in the country as the guest of the younger brother of King Letsie III.
