In March 2007 the Duke of Sussex was appointed as Patron of Dolen Cymru. Dolen Cymru was delighted to welcome a Patron who has shown such a personal commitment to the people of Lesotho having seen the warmth of its people and the great need that exists whilst undertaking a gap year placement in Lesotho in 2004.
‘I am so very proud to be associated with Dolen Cymru.The work that it does in assisting and encouraging organisations and individuals in Wales to establish contact and foster friendships with their counterparts in Lesotho is quite invaluable.
I know from my own work in Lesotho just how important such links are and fully support Dolen Cymru in its great endeavours to develop contacts with organisations with common interests, such as my own Sentebale and to build upon the great understanding and co-operation that exists between the two nations.
As Patron, I congratulate you most sincerely on all that Dolen Cymru has achieved and I look forward to my association with you.’
