Dr Sonia Devereux wants other GPs and health professionals to join her in helping children at a Kenyan orphanage whose parents have died of AIDS.

Dr Devereux, a GP in Newburgh, Fife, will spend next week at the orphanage in Nairobi helping younger children with emotional problems, including bed-wetting, and advising older ones on issues such as sexual health.

She said: 'The children have their physical care provided but I will be looking at their developmental and emotional care as they haven't got parents and are going into the world alone.

'I really want to wait and see what will work best for them, but ideally it would be something sustainable so health care professionals go out at regular intervals.
