URGENT APPEAL: Bright eyes for baby Chloe

Baby Chloe is a beautiful little girl, nearly 18 months old.  She was rescued by New Life Home Trust when she was just 2 days old and is now a sweet, loveable, happy, and confident little girl with bright eyes and an angelic smile.

Little Chloe has been apparently healthy so far, but recently her left eye was noticed to have a yellow/white pupil reflex and, following an examination under anaesthetic here in Kenya, she was diagnosed with advanced retinoblastoma (cancer of the retina) in her left eye.  This form of cancer is rare but, if treated quickly, the survival rate is 95%.

Unfortunately, retinoblastoma is not treatable in Kenya and the Consultant Paediatric Eye Surgeon here in Kenya is urging us to take baby Chloe to the UK immediately for urgent and vital eye-saving and life-saving treatment.

We, therefore, call on all our friends around the globe to partner with us in prayer and generous giving to help fund Chloe’s treatment and travel costs.

Until Chloe sees a specialist in the UK, we will not know the full cost of the treatment.  However, we are setting an initial target of GBP 70,000 or KES 10,000,000 to get the ball rolling and Chloe airborne!

If you would like to give, you can give online via our Virgin Money Giving page or email us at

Thank you so much for your support.

Sponsor a Cot this Christmas

This Christmas, instead of buying overpriced toiletry gift sets or yet another pair of socks, why not buy a gift with a difference?

Sponsoring a cot with New Life Home Trust is a gift that can really change lives. When you sponsor a cot, your money could go towards saving and transforming a baby’s life in Kenya.

At New Life Home Trust we strive to make each baby feel loved and to have the best possible chance for a new life. The help and support of our sponsors is invaluable in providing continued care.

When you sponsor a cot, New Life Home Trust is able to provide space, love and care for abandoned babies. However, anyone who has a baby or has looked after babies will know that they require a lot of supplies. It costs around £400 to care for each baby in one of the New Life homes in Kenya.

By sponsoring a cot this Christmas you could help to contribute towards:

180 Nappies per baby a month (over 23000 nappies!)
130 cots available for abandoned babies available across Kenya.
210 bottles of milk a month for each baby (over 27000 altogether!)
Over a ton of baby clothes washed and dried each month, by hand, for all the babies.
Each baby will be fed, cuddled and soothed thousands of times by the carers and volunteers.
Doctors will be called and medicine paid for and given to any baby who needs it.
The guards at the gate will keep each baby safe day & night.

As a New Life Home Trust sponsor, you will play a vital part of changing a child’s life for the better. Instead of buying a gift that will sit on the shelf collecting dust, sponsor a cot and set the foundations for the rest of a baby or child’s life.

To give the gift of a healthy, happy start in life this Christmas for yourself, a friend or a family member, download a copy of our leaflet here then email us to express your interest. Your monthly donations can be anything from £10 to £1,000… every little helps! Christmas Sponsor A Cot donors will receive a printable Christmas certificate.

Together, we’re running a collective Christmas campaign to aim to cover the cost of a cot for a whole year (£4,800). If you could contribute a little, (or a lot!) donate online here!

You can also donate to the general work of New Life Home Trust, by setting up a monthly or one-off payment here.
