In 1996 Lungile and Nkazi Sinandile (aka South African Orion Duet) a vocal husband-wife recording team started refugee outreach by staging Rwanda Civil War benefit fund-raisers in 1994 to help identified genocide victims in Rwanda and in 1997 brought a young Rwandan orphan to New Mexico with the help of New Mexicans. Since 2006 the couple continues to sing for the Glory of God, raising funds to benefit refugees, immigrants and other under-served children and families in New Mexico as well as identified hiv/aids infected and affected orphans of their native land, specific the Eastern Cape, South Africa, the couple's native land.
For now, almost all funding is coming from their hard earned wages, with a dollar from here and there. The Organization is in the process of applying for funding in different grants. We hope this year 2016, will be very different from the past years.
