„Alafia – Health“: This is what many of the patients from the Saint Jean de Dieu Hospital wish for one another. Located in the north of Benin, in the city of Tanguieta, people from various different religions, cultures and ethnic groups meet and they all share the same need for medical support. The patients come from the surrounding villages, as well as from the bordering countries Togo, Niger, Burkina Faso and Nigeria.
