What are we doing in BNEFIT?

We are just a bunch of volunteers united for a common VISION. Let's pause and ask after ten years. And let us try to get some more community support. Thank you to all the men and women of BNEFIT who do not count the time, the cost and the efforts to help out. May God grant us strength to continue.
