Our Supporters

Help Lesotho has an incredible network of supporters in Canada, Lesotho and around the world. Through people’s incredible generosity of time, ideas and support, Help Lesotho is a stronger, more effective organization.

Honourary Patron

His Majesty, King Letsie III is the honourary Patron of Help Lesotho. He has visited many Help Lesotho projects at schools, grandmother groups and our Seotlong Centre in Hlotse. His Majesty and his family are highly respected by the Basotho people, and their support for Help Lesotho is a tremendous recognition of the impact the organization is having on the ground.

In November 2009, His Majesty travelled to Ottawa to celebrate Help Lesotho’s 5th Anniversary. His Majesty met with hundreds of Help Lesotho supporters to thank them for their commitment to the people of Lesotho.

Testimonials

“Sandra and I have been keen supporters of Help Lesotho since the very beginning. Sandra was one of the first volunteers and remains passionate about the plight of the people of Lesotho. We travelled to Lesotho to see for ourselves where our funds were going in March 2010. Although we were entirely convinced about the impact of the organization and its financial accountability, we were quite astonished to see that the effectiveness of their programs and the esteem in which the organization is held in the country were both far beyond anything we had imagine. I cannot think of an organization which has done so much in such a short time with so little. Help Lesotho is now poised to become a national leader in helping those who are poor and without support. Sandra and I will contribute to the goal of ensuring this organization is sustainable going forward, in addition to our regular giving. We strongly encourage you to do so as well. We all want to support something that is doing the right thing. Now is our chance.”

The Hon. Paul Hellyer, Author of 12 books, commentator, advocate, long term member of the Canadian Parliament and former Canadian Minister of National Defence and Minister of Transportation.

“Help Lesotho has proven itself. I continue to be impressed with its financial management and ability to reach tens of thousands of Basotho with effective programs, compassion and resources. I am convinced that my pledge will help many more orphans and grandmothers and support the next generation of young leaders in Lesotho. This is the kind of charity I look to support and I encourage you to do so as well.”

“I have followed the development of Help Lesotho since its inception and am impressed at its rapid growth and culturally valuable impact in this small African country of Lesotho.  It is to the organization’s credit that it has gathered such an impressive group of discriminating and knowledgeable donors. My wife and I will support Help Lesotho as it is the kind of effective, lean and focused humanitarian organization we want to support.”
