A Story of Surviving & Thriving
Eugenia at age 3.
I was introduced to Eugenia in early 2017 when she was 3 years old. Eugenia’s parents had passed from AIDS and she was desperately sick, living with her grandmother. The picture on the left was just before Eugenia was admitted to Sr. Justine’s hospital in critical condition, near death. Sister Justine asked PFHS Outreach to assist. Eugenia needed to be transferred to a hospital capable of caring for her but her grandmother couldn’t afford that level of care. PFHS Outreach provided the funds.
Once at the better-equipped hospital, By the Grace of God, Eugenia made a remarkable recovery. In early April of 2018, I spent time with her (left photo below) and her grandmother. Eugenia was a 4-year-old full of life. She ran around singing during my visit and is a gift to all who know her. After her recovery, Eugenia was sponsored monthly by a compassionate donor. She has maintained good health with the help of her sponsor. With the sponsorship, she has been able to receive proper nourishment, supplements and vitamins.
In September of 2019, she started school for the first time as a 5-year-old in Kindergarten (right photo below).

How does PFSHC child sponsorship work?
Our child sponsorship program addresses the root causes of a child’s health vulnerabilities as HIV patients. Because of poverty, food security is one of the causes of their premature deaths. The funds provide the basics which includes clean water, food, supplements, vitamins, additional medicines as well as transportation to the hospital for their checkups. Additionally, footwear and toiletries are sometimes delivered. A healthcare professional visits the child to check on their well-being. Sometimes they receive temporary treatment and if necessary, they are transported to the hospital. Each visit includes prayer services.
And it’s effective! The transformation has been amazing on almost all of the sponsored children!
- Children are healthier!
- The children are sick less often!
- Those that can attend school are thriving!
- They gain necessary body weight!
- They grow in their faith!
