A student who visited a run-down African orphanage was so moved by the children’s plight that she raised the money to buy it.
Amy Lambert, 24, spent eight weeks volunteering at a Tanzania orphanage last summer, where she cared for 150 boys and girls – many of whom had lost one or both parents to AIDS and HIV.
She found children who were starving, dangerously dehydrated and sleeping in dirty beds. The undergraduate at Bath Spa university raised more than £30,000 in just seven months.
