“Meet Abiti. Due to a condition she has endured her entire life, Abiti is unable to walk upright. Thanks to generous donors, BBF was able to send a PET International: Gift of Mobility hand-pedal-powered cart along with a shipment to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Malawi that has given Abiti a new independence.
