Wonji Gefersa Meserete Kristos Choir

History and ministry

Wonji Gefersa (Oromo: Wancii Gafarsaa) is located about 10km south of Nazareth in the East Shewa Zone of the Oromia Region.  

There is a large sugar plantation that covers more than 7000 hectares of land.

During the 1960s on, hundreds–if not thousands–of migrant workers from Southern areas (Arsi, Hadiyya, Kambaata, etc.) worked in Wonji Gefersa.
