The Watoto children’s choir visited the Woodland Grove Care Home as part of their 6-months long UK tour. The choir consists of orphans from Uganda who have lost their parents to war situations or HIV. The positivity of the choir brought new life into the Care Home and was highly appreciated by the residents. Resident Joan Hall states: “The children were so lovely and very talented. We are privileged to have had them here. They moved me to tears on several occasions.”
The children are all aged between 7 and 12. They have been taken on by a Christian Charity who gives people in need a home and helps the children to develop essential life skills. It was highlighted that the children also got a lot out of the visit at the Woodland Grove Care Home: They had never performed for elderly people and so the visit enriched their experience a lot.
