Donor & Volunteer
1. How did you first come to hear about New Life?
I had just moved to Kenya (from Italy) because of my husband’s work. One day, I saw the New Life home and felt very curious, so I went inside to see what it was all about. As soon as I did, I was given an apron and began to help out.
2. What made you decide to choose New Life as your beneficiary?
As I continued volunteering at New Life, I began to understand better the daily needs of the babies from both a human and an economic point of view. The more I understood this, the more I felt compelled to involve my Italian friends.
3. Since becoming a supporter, how would you describe your relationship with New Life?
Every time New Life says, “Thank you, Carlotta”, I reply, “Thank you, New Life.” Throughout my stay in Kenya, they really were a second home for me. Though I was far from my natural family, I became very close to this new family.
4. Looking forward, what do you hope to achieve through your partnership with New Life?
Now that I have relocated to Madrid in Spain (again, because of my husband’s work) I am unable to volunteer at the home, but I hope to serve New Life in the future through my commitment to on-going fundraising events abroad.
