New beekeeping charity for Africa

A new charity is to be launched next week in London aiming to to alleviate poverty in the rural areas of Africa by equipping beekeepers with better hives. Hives Save Life-Africa (HSLA) is the brainchild of Richard Unwin, a British businessman who claims to have started a beekeeping organization of 84,000 beekeepers in Uganda.

UPDATE 22 October 2004: I've just noticed that the HivesSaveLives website is now live, although the navigation is in need of repair.
