by Patrick Meikle

(Rockland, March 29, 2012) Children of the Motherland is presenting Dance Through Cultures And All Talents, a musical and dance extraveganza this coming Saturday, March 31, at the Optimist Performance Hall which is located at 1525 du Parc Avenue, behind the YMCA/L'Escale complex.

This performance is a fundraising event for children in refugee camps in Burundi. Part of the money raised will be donated to the local food bank.

Goretti (named after the saint) is originally from Burundi and is a practising lawyer in Ottawa. She recently visited a refugee camp in Burundi and "saw the need" to help the children. She has been a Rockland resident for three years.

If you click on the poster on the right, you will see that three groups are featured. They are: Abezamutima, and Madame Omely-Vietnam.
