In Niger and worldwide, legendary surgeon and humanitarian Jean-Marie Servant is mourned

Jean-Marie Servant learned his surgery techniques in the great hospitals of the world. But it was in Niger, the poorest country on the planet, where he was able to pioneer a facial reconstruction technique that now helps poor children suffering from a poverty-related disease that goes back to ancient times. Servant is remembered by his friend and colleague Daniel Cataldo.
