Famous African choir to give three Coffs Coast performances

THREE performances by the Watoto African Orphans Choir have been locked in for the Coffs Coast.

The choir will first perform at Sawtell Uniting Church on May 23 from 3pm.

The following day the children will be at Narranga Primary School Hall at 10am before heading down the coast to Nambucca Heads where they will appear that night from 6pm at the Nambucca River Presbyterian Church.

Founded in Uganda 11 years ago by missionary Gary Skinner, the acclaimed choir travels the world as ambassadors for the millions of African children orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS, war and poverty.

"The children and young adults of Africa are the key to the future," Gary said.

"Watoto's mission is to rescue an individual and raise each one as a leader, so that they in turn will rebuild their nation with strength and integrity."

All concerts are free and open to the public.

The opportunity to donate or sponsor a Watoto child will be given at the performance.
