Bohicon has been the starting point of our health-related actions. In Sedovikon there is the first out of four nutrition centres for children, built and supported together with as many dispensaries. They are in some villages surrounding Bohicon, in Bagou, in Pereré, in Ségbana, in Fô Bouré, in Koudougou, Burkina-Faso and at the Kekeli Neva institute in Togo.
In Togo there is now also the small hospital of Godjeme, with the maternity ward. Mainly thanks to the Turin support group three wings have been added to the Boko Hospital in Parakou, which was improved with four new wards (general medicine, ophthalmology, stomatology, orthopaedics), a new mobile field hospital, some ambulances and a house for doctors.
At Kandi, the bush hosptale of Fafa has been furnished with furniture coming from the Hospital of Silandro. The generating sets which grant power supply have been provided by GMM, that funded also the building of the two wells providing drinking water. In Cotonou the St. Luc Hospital has an Operation Room funded by the Turin Rotary Club, while beds and wheelchairs come from Bolzano. Merano Lyons took part in creating an ophthalmology OR for the Togo capital city’s hospital.
Moreover, cash money help also is often offered to missionaries managing health care centres, as for example the Camilians in the Abomey leper colony. Through the last decades many specialized Italian doctors and other Italian health operators have been working in Benin and surrounding countries.
