Typical homes in Benin
Pastor Amadin leads a church in a Muslim community in northern Benin.
Three Islamic extremists visited his house while he was away and his children were in school. The men attacked his wife with acid, pouring it into her eyes and forcing her to drink it. When neighbors heard her screaming, they rushed to the house, and the attackers fled. Pastor Amadin’s wife was taken to the hospital but died three weeks later. Her funeral took place on May 19, 2023.
