This Sunday, the African Children’s Choir will perform at South Fork Baptist Church. The choir, made up of children ages 7 to 11, has been touring in North America for 26 years raising awareness and funds to provide necessities to some of the world’s most impoverished children.

The choir is now on its 35th tour, and has raised millions of dollars for educating and rebuilding countries ravished by poverty, war, and AIDS.

Since being established in 1984, the choir has provided funds to build numerous homes, schools, and orphanages for children all over Africa. More than 700 children have been through the choir program, providing them the necessities to break the chain of poverty.    

The group will perform 6 p.m. Sept. 19 at South Fork Baptist Church. For more information about the African Children’s Choir, visit www.africanchildrenschoir.com.
