The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund and The Nelson Mandela Children's Fund are joining forces to support children and communities affected by HIV/Aids in South Africa. Details of the initiative have yet to be decided but the two are to pool their lobbying clout and fundraising to boost services on the ground. The plan, which was sparked by Diana's brother Charles Spencer, will be worked out when The Diana, Princess of Wales team returns from working in eastern South Africa. The agreement is to be sealed when Mandela pays a tribute to the late Princess in London on 2 November.
