HELPING children living in earthquake-ravaged Haiti is the motivation behind an upcoming concert featuring young Coffs Harbour vocalists Belinda Ward and Shekinah Moye.

Belinda and Shekinah are joining forces to present the Music and Memories for Mums concert that will highlight the work of Frontier Projects.

It’s a charity that was founded by Coffs Harbour teachers Cheryl and John Ward in response to the 2010 earthquake that left the Caribbean island decimated.

“Haiti is in a nation where sadly, so many mothers live without hope that their children will ever attend school,” Cheryl said.

“Our passion is to work alongside local Haitian missions teams to build and staff schools and community homes.”

Since 2011, Cheryl and John have journeyed to Haiti on several missions – taking teams of other local leaders, teachers and family members to help make a difference.

Among the work Frontier Projects has completed is the construction of a school in the Bouvier mountains.

Before it was built, local children had been at risk of abduction and trafficking as they trekked to previous facilities in Port au Prince – a six hour walk away.

The concert, also featuring internationally trained pianist Mei Wei Lim, will be held at Southern Cross University’s O-Block theatre at 7pm on Saturday, May 7.

Tickets cost $35 and are available at or at Beauty on the Promenade.
