PICCOLA OPERA DON GIOVANNI PAGANIZZA CONTRIBUTION TO THE SISTERS « OBLATE CATECHISTE PICCOLE SERVE DEI POVERI » of BENIN

africa rep congo (pointe noire) e benin (abomey)As reported in our previous publications, due to your generosity, it really was possible to send a container in Pointe-Noire, last Christmas. A new opportunity was given us to help sending another container last March, in Agnangnan, a small village near Abomey in Benin. The container was delivered to “Francesco Massaro” OCPSP (Oblate Catechiste Piccole Serve dei Poveri) (http://aleimar.it/abomey/ ) Centre, which scope is to helping nutrition of around fifty orphans children from zero to three years old. Our Church (http://www.vicariatusurbis.org/?page_id=188&ID=10543 ) is actually hosting some of those sisters.   :-)

Benin is one of West African’s poorest republics and stands at 166th place on Human Development Index. With no underground raw materials, Benin’s economy is based on subsidence agriculture, cotton export culture and regional small business. Country bad weather and population’s hazardous hygienic conditions induce diseases as malaria, yellow fever and hepatitis. HIV virus coupled to malaria explain in country high mortality. Poor nutrition quality is killing more and more adults and children in rural zones mainly. Many mothers and their babies die because of assistance lack while giving birth.
