for there is always light if we're brave enough to see it,
if only we're brave enough to be it!"
New DAWN Africa , Inc.

was created in response to the dire need for maternal healthcare in Dandora,
a community on the Eastern edge of Nairobi, Kenya.
We facilitated the construction of
Brother Andre Hospital (formerly Visitation Maternity),
a state of the art award winning level 3 Hospital,
on the grounds of Holy Cross Parish, Dandora.
We support the efforts of BAH staff through strategic initiatives.
