Missionary work since 1978

New Life Mission – Aid was founded in August 1978 and has been doing mission- and charity work ever since. The work started in Kenya by building a childrens home for children who were in prison together with their mothers. The children were living in terrible conditions and we were unable to just watch this without getting engaged. This was the start of  a tremendous charity work in Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America.

Over the years, New Life has transported thousands of  tons of emergency supplies to poor families and hospitals in several East European countries.

In Kenya, New Life has built, and rehabilitated, children’s homes and started pre-schools, primary schools and a high school.

In addition to this, New Life is running a center for street boys, a project for widows and a charity work among the poor in the slum. New Life has also developed several water projects in Kenya, in addition to support of children’s homes in several countries in Latin America and Eastern Europe.

New Life has alwys worked closely with th elocal population and local resources.
