Death of Denis Renaud

Les Amis de la Saint-Camille wishes to offer its sympathies to the family and friends of Denis Renaud, who passed away on December 5th. Denis, together with his wife Suzanne Ladouceur, was the founder of our organization. When Grégoire Ahongbonon came to Québec for the first time in 2001, Denis and Suzanne helped form a small informal group to support the work of this great African. They maintained this support group until it became our formal NGO in 2011. 

A BIG THANK YOU Denis for your unwavering commitment, together with that of your life partner Suzanne. Your work is invaluable.

At the Adjarra Center

This Health Center near Porto-Novo is being developed to become a zone hospital recognized by the Beninese government. This is where patients of the Saint-Camille in Benin are treated free of charge for physical health problems. The regional population also has access to this service, at reduced cost. Steps are underway to ensure that the Health Center is recognized as meeting the governmental standards that apply to the rest of the national network. We are supporting our partner in this project: sending a container of equipment via Collaboration Santé Internationale, purchasing equipment on-site to set up a surgery room, erecting a building to house the medical staff, etc. Other developments are to be planned for the year 2022.  The Saint-Camille can count on us.
