ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany church was visited by a special group of children Sunday morning who needs their help to rebuild their home overseas.

The Uganda Children's Choir performed at Gillionville Baptist Church. These orphans have been touring the U.S. since May to raise money to rebuild their orphanage. The facility was condemned, and so far the group has reached 80 percent of their goal.

"I sing because I want to praise God and thank him for everything he has done for us," said choir member.

"I have never seen children sing like these children. Their song comes from their heart. These children have absolutely nothing, and they sing out of the love they have for the Lord," said pastor, Tony Haefs.

One hundred percent of what they raise goes toward the building of their new orphanage and school.
