What People Are Saying
"I lost my job a few weeks before Christmas. Action Nouvelle Vie gave my three children Christmas gifts and we received a big food basket. It will make a huge difference for our family!"
— Sébastien, beneficiary and volunteer
"Thanks to the Mères en Action workshops, I came out of my shell, and I was able to learn a lot more about myself. I think that today I am a better mom for my children."
"Young people who lack support at home are more at risk of being manipulated and lured into gangs where they face violence and exploitation. They need an anchor and people they know they can trust."
