NewLife has been reaching out to the immediate Ottawa community by supporting Shelters like Restoring Hope Youth Shelter and collecting tons of gently used clothing and accessories for the Value Village Diabetes foundation. This year our local relief effort will focus on reaching out to low income families and the homeless with warm scarves, masks, hats and snack packs through our ‘Stay warm and safe care package programs.’ These items will be locally produced by NewLife Designs or bought from another company. Our goal is to support our community and be there for those in need. We encourage you to join us by donating to this cause in cash or kind.
For the past fours years in Canada, NewLife Project Inc. has been meeting the needs of at-risk women and children in Sierra Leone, Cote D’Ivoire and recently Ghana by organizing an ongoing Clothing, Backpack and Household Goods Drive and receiving generous donations from within the Ottawa community and beyond. This has helped to equip these women and children with resources for the next stages of their lives and careers. In the last four years, our Relief Program has been able to meet the needs of students in the above countries with backpacks and school supplies to support their educational needs. The Project has equally sponsored several students financially to help sustain their education in Freetown, Sierra Leone and Grand Lahou, Cote d’Ivoire. To further aid our International Relief program, we organize fundraising events such as Taste of Africa Bazaar and yard sales and participate in various exhibitions around the City of Ottawa.
