Abaana New Life Choir

Tuesday 07 February 2017

Last week the Abaana New Life Choir arrived in Northern Ireland to begin their four month tour. These children are “ambassadors” for the many still living in poverty in their communities. The choir will perform their Ugandan and English gospel songs in schools and churches across the UK and Ireland. Through this tour, we hope to be able to sponsor another 200–300 children and rescue more children from the streets. This will be an incredible experience for the children in the choir and an amazing opportunity for them to help transform their own communities.’

During the concerts, there will be a freewill offering when you will have the opportunity to contribute towards the work of Abaana.

Abaana, (which is the Luganda word for ‘children’) is a local Christian charity set up in 1998.The visionis ‘to see children in Africa have their needs met, their rights upheld, and their dreams fulfilled, through raising awareness and motivating people to give sacrificially, so that lives are transformed and the love of God is shown in a practical way.’
