What we do

We provide an environment that is safe, modern and loving. We recognize that a heart and soul exists beneath each jersey of an athlete and behind each talent.


Sports Aid Africa (SAA) is a Kenyan
Non-Governmental Organization. We are dedicated to serving the forcibly displaced persons residing in Dadaab, Kakuma and Kalobeyei refugee camp.

One friday in early 2010, Bernard Bitter saw a documentary on the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya

At the time Dadaab was the largest refugee camp in the world with approximately 500 000 refugees. Bernard was compelled to do something about the plight of refugees. This led to the establishment of Sports Aid Africa in August 2012, as a vehicle to bring hope to refugees in camps.

What's Happening around us



Dadaab Refugee camp was established in 1991, Dadaab is the biggest refugee camp in the world. Originally constructed for 90,000 people fleeing civil war in Somalia,
the camp would eventually
host over 460,000 refugees


Kakuma Refugee Camp is
located in Turkana District of the
North-Western region of Kenya,
120 kilometres from Lodwar
District Headquarters
and 95 kilometres from the Lokichoggio Kenya-Sudan border.


The ongoing care and maintenance program, which was based on the assumption that the refugee situation is temporary, focuses on providing refugees with basic humanitarian assistance, including free food, non-food items and basic services.
