building a brighter future for our children
Lucy Herron, who is from England saw news reports of Prince Harry’s visit to Mants’ase in 2004. She immediately contacted the Home and has supported Mants'ase Children's Home in many ways.
In 2006 Lucy traveled through Africa, volunteering at the Home from August to December of that year. She soon realized the children would benefit enormously from a more varied diet which at the time was beyond the Home’s budget. Lucy contacted family and friends who sent money for fruit, vegetables, meat and fish to add to the children’s meals. And the children flourished. Having seen the positive effects for herself, on returning home to England Lucy started a charity so as to ensure the children continued to receive this important and nutritious variety in their diet. And from this small charity Msizi Africa has grown.
Built in 2009
Built in 2010
Lucy served on the Board of Trustees from 2010 to January 2014, was the Home's temporary Manager for a short while in 2011 and although Msizi Africa is no longer one of our major donors Lucy continues to visit us regularly and we are always very happy to welcome her.
From 2007 to 2014 Msizi Africa provided funding for food for the children and staff at Mants'ase Children's Home. In 2014, by mutual agreement it was decided that the Home should accept offers of food from Basotho donors. No longer relying on overseas funding for food would help to ensure our future sustainability.
Msizi Africa has contributed significantly to the upgrading of the Home’s facilities and this in turn has done much to help facilitate the admission of more children as and when the need has arisen.
