Our Caregivers: 

They sing, dance, play, feed, care and love unconditionally. Tending to the needs of our infants, tots & children - day in & day out - is no easy task. That difficult but rewarding job of nurturing abandoned and malnourished babies into happy, healthy brothers, sisters, sons and daughters falls to our committed caregivers. Allow us to introduce a few of our long-time New Life caregiving veterans to you.

1. How did you come to work at New Life?
I heard about New Life in 1994, when the home was first opening, through a friend of a friend who knew Clive and Mary Beckenham. That friend talked to Mary about me because, at the time, they were looking for additional help. When Mary called me to come and work with them, I had just finished a one week prayer seminar.

2. What’s your favourite part of working with New Life?
I enjoy the transformation. I love seeing the little babies arriving very sick and malnourished, and then helping care for them until adoption. I also love feeding time and making sure all the babies are well satisfied.

3. What are some highlights from your time at New Life?
I remember when we got the Kilimani property, how it was such a relief and a dream come true at the same time. One thing I look forward to every year is our Open Day – when adoptive parents and adopted children return, bringing friends and family with them.

4. Looking forward, what is your biggest wish for New Life?
I want to see our older children have a permanent home until they become independent adults.

Baby Unit Supervisor

1. How did you come to work at New Life?
I came to work at New Life because a friend and colleague directed me here many years back. Since then, I have been taking care of children and the joy it gives me is incomparable.

2. What’s your favourite part of working with New Life?
My favourite part is care-giving. My children are now teenagers and I get to work with babies even if my own are grown, I get to take care of other children. Above all else, I get to be a mother to all the abandoned babies.

3. What are some highlights from your time at New Life?
My highlight, over the years, is the emotion and feeling that comes with letting go of a child that I have bonded with. I am overjoyed and glad, when each child gets a new home but at the same time, tears of sadness just flow to see the child leave.

4. Looking forward, what is your biggest wish for New Life?
For New Life to continue in its expansion so that we have the capacity to take care of more and more babies that need our help. So help us God.
