ALBION, Mich. - Uganda's civil war may be a world away, but concern for its suffering children is evident on Albion College's campus. As part of its effort to involve Albion in easing this crisis, Albion College's Bitone Project student group presents a screening of Invisible Children, a documentary about the ongoing civil war in Northern Uganda. The film will be shown Thursday, Oct. 4, at 7 p.m. in Norris Center's Towsley Hall.
Invisible Children exposes the lives of several children caught in the fight between the Ugandan government and the Lord's Resistance Army. It was produced by three Americans and is an extremely interesting, compelling, and fast paced film with an MTV beat. The film seeks to raise awareness and promote healthcare, safety, employment and education for the people of Northern Uganda. For more information, visit http://www.invisiblechildren.com.
Albion College's Bitone Project currently helps support the Bitone Home of Uganda, an orphanage that uses traditional performing arts to help rehabilitate children traumatized by the war. More information about the Bitone Home in Uganda is available at http://www.bitonechildren.org/.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Bitone Project president Amber Hughson at 248/245-5505 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
