The Kuyasa Kids, Horizon International’s acclaimed ambassador choir from Capetown, South Africa, will be in concert at Imperial Berean Church on Wed., March 27, at 6:30 p.m.
The Kuyasa Kids are from a Xhosa tribal township called Kayamandi, approximately 25 miles from Capetown, Western Cape Province, South Africa. Some of the 18 children and youth traveling in the choir are making their ninth concert tour of the United States.
The purpose of the Spring Choir Tour, scheduled from March 24 to April 14, is to encourage Americans to sponsor African children and youth who have lost their parents to the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
Horizon International is a non-profit Christian relief and development organization dedicated to creating a world of hope for orphans affected by HIV/AIDS. The organization, based in Pendleton, Ind., serves these orphans and their communities regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender, enabling them to break the cycle of poverty and live free from the bonds of poverty and disease.
For $35 per month, one can provide an African AIDS orphan with basic food, clothing, an education, basic health care, and in some cases, a place to live.
During the tour, the Kuyasa Kids will make concert appearances in 20 different locations in Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado and South Dakota. One of those 20 stops is next week in Imperial.
