As part of an ever-expanding mission to provide collaborative humanitarian support to people whose living conditions and ability to access basic human survival services and commodities, such as healthy food, clean water, decent living conditions and basic health care including medications, Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation is pleased to announce its latest Initiative in Lesotho.
Officially the Kingdom of Lesotho, it is a landlocked country in southern Africa which is completely surrounded by South Africa. Bring Hope’s board member Thomas Campbell and Football Ambassador, Kevin Campbell (former UK legend footballer), met Lesotho’s Prime Minister, Mr. Tom Thabane in July 2017 to discuss humanitarian aid and initiating Bring Hope’s football project.
A dinner was held which was attended by the entire cabinet membership to launch this special collaboration. With just over 30,000 km 2 and a population slightly over two million their infant mortality rate is at about 8.3%. There are only 5 physicians per 100,000 persons. Lesotho is severely afflicted with HIV/AIDS, the prevalence is one of the highest in the world. In urban areas, about 50% of women under 40 have HIV.
