The Benita Family lives in the Community of Naveh. Two months ago Esther Benita gave birth to a baby girl named Avishag. Avishag was born with a severe deformity of her face. This defect causes respiratory dysfunction, feeding difficulties, as well as a complex aesthetic impairment. Avishag has double clefts in her gums and double clefts in her lip, her nose is dislocated and her palate distorted. She is incapable of nursing and each feeding process takes over an hour and a half , accompanied by danger of suffocation and respiratory distress.

In compliance with the recommendation of Rabbi Firrer together with top Israeli surgeons, Baby Avishag and her parents must fly to Boston by next month to begin a series of surgical procedures.

Avishag has six young brothers and sisters. Her mother, Esther is also recuperating from a serious health problem. Despite all the difficulties, the family is bravely dealing with the situation.

The cost of the treatment is estimated at $120,000. The family needs your assistance... please help Baby Avishag get funded for the surgeries she must undergo. Every little bit count and together we can help this sweet baby girl and her wonderful family. 

Please note that the contribution is for Avishag Benita and the foundation has both Israeli and American tax exemption.

Thank you.
