Benita Awori


    Benita’s Story

    Benita’s mother passed away after complications in childbirth and her father has never been in her life. Benita’s grandmother took responsibility for her and loves her very much. Unfortunately, Benita’s Jaja (grandmother) was not able to provide Benita with the nutritious food, medical attention or other basic needs she needed to thrive as a baby. When PFP found Benita, she had been hospitalized with severe malnutrition along with malaria and meningitis. Peace for Paul stepped in to help Jaja care for Benita. 

    Jaja will continue to provide the love and emotional support Benita so desperately needs, but Benita’s sponsorship through PFP allows her to get all of her basic needs met. Together, we will all ensure Benita not only survives, but thrives!
