A Ugandan choir made up of children who've lost loved ones to Aids and war is performing in the Channel Islands.

The Watoto Choir was set up in 1994, and now multiple troupes of the choir perform around the world to advocate for the millions of African children currently orphaned by Aids, poverty and war.

Their Concerts of Hope are held in churches, community halls and schools and they've performed for royalty and world leaders at Buckingham Palace and the White House.

They're performing six days of concerts in Jersey, including across the Easter weekend, followed by three days in Guernsey before the end of April.
