Sister Julia Aguar, "the angel of Benin" at the service of the sick
In Benin for more than 40 years, Sister Julia Aguiar, a nurse by training, understood very early on that God wanted her skills to be put at the service of the sick. Nicknamed "the angel of Benin," she’s received many awards for her work in this country, including an honorary doctorate in medicine and surgery. At the heart of Sister Julia's commitment are two priorities: the health of the poor and the desire to witness to God's love for all.
