I support the work of AfriKids because it counters the image so many have of the continent. As I say in my book, this is not the victim-Africa you see on the television news. It is not the beggar-Africa you are asked to help in endless emergency appeals or the corrupt-Africa you run into when you try to do business there.

I believe history will judge AfriKids as one of the few charities who manage to answer the million dollar question; how can we make aid work for Africa? The way they give in Ghana seems to me as the ultimate upgrade of aid in Africa.Sorious Samura, BAFTA and Emmy Award winning journalist
