Camp Fellowship provides Housing for the Imani Milele Choir
The resident population of Fellowship Camp and Conference Center, located on the shores of Lake Greenwood, grew last week – a lot.
The Imani Milele Choir, which includes 21 children and a support team of 16 adults, is a Christian nonprofit organization that raises awareness about Uganda’s three million-plus orphans and vulnerable children. They use love offerings received during their choral performances to help improve the lives of children in poor communities in Uganda by equipping them with the necessary skills for developing into self-sufficient and productive individuals.
Their tour dates over the next eight weeks were all canceled due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 precautions. They were scheduled to preform at two Laurens area churches and it was previously arranged for the choir to stay at the camp during their tour dates here.
With normal operations suspended, the camp’s Board of Directors met and along with staff made a commitment to shelter, feed, and nurture the group until such time as the immediate crisis ends and the choir is able to travel again. (See the WYFF news story here)
You can help provide food and shelter to these children and adults by making a donation to Fellowship Camp and Conference Center. At this time, monetary donations are most helpful and requested because we are able to receive supplies and food through our normal supply channels. By continuing to purchase and receive supplies from our normal supply lines, we are able to receive the quantities needed while not depleting the shelves of local stores in our community and beyond.
