Prince Harry is doing good works in a syle that is natural. I feel he learnt something from his mother.

Prince Harry's charity accused of not honouring pledge to abused African children - Telegraph
quote from the article:
But Sentebale, which supports 15 other organisations in Lesotho, has declined to hand over money because of an apparent unwillingness from the unit's management to give undertakings over the transparency of their financial procedures.
A source added: “All the other local organisations with which Sentebale works in Lesotho readily sign up to the same, basic levels of transparency.”

Didn't the same organisation make the same complaint six months or so ago? Then, the issue was over bank account details.
Otherwise we could just as easily have the story "Harry's charity gives money to an organisation that refuses to reveal details of its financial procedures".

I wish that the British Prince Harry would concentrate his support on charities for children in Britain, but all charitable institutions should be transparent and their accounts open to be seen by all interested parties.
Not because I grudge those poor children in Africa help but most of the governments of these countries have very rich resources and should help their own more instead of relying on any foreign country to provide what they don´t for their population.

This is a very real issues that face a number of charitable institutions - making sure the projects you provide funding for and are actually goingto use the funds in the way that you expect them to. It does not sutrprise me that despite having eht funding in place, Prince Harry's charity has been unable to advance the cash

I agree with you absolutely. They should help; but they don't. The UK, on the other hand, has a welfare system. It's not perfect, but it's there to aid people who need help.

I'm fortunate enough to have met the people in Africa to whom my dollars are going. It's a school for AIDs orphans, and I know that the man who runs it isn't skimming funds.

He is always amazing with children. Maybe because he still is a kid himself.

I believe that Harry actually said that about himself when he was in Africa!

A secret donation from one of the Conservative Party's richest benefactors has averted a financial crisis at Prince Harry's charity to help starving children in Africa.

Prince Harry's charity saved from crisis by Lord Ashcroft donation - Telegraph

One has to question what has happened to the money, time for new managers perhaps?
