27-year-old Manouabe, who lives with a mental health condition, is usually chained to a tree within the grounds of the Pentecostal Church of Bokiccenag. One of the primary functions of the church is to pray to resolve the problems of the congregation. These range from financial difficulties to severe illnesses. On the day this photograph was taken, 15 adults living with mental health problems were chained to trees or posts while they waited to be cured through prayer. Some had been there for more than a year. Northern Togo, September 2015.

يبلغ مانوابي 27 عاماً وهو يعاني من أمراض عقلية، لذا غالباً ما يتم تقييده بشجرة داخل أراضي الكنيسة الخمسينية في بوكيتشيناغ. إحدى الوظائف الأساسية للكنيسة هي الصلاة لحل مشاكل المصلين، ولكنّ المشاكل التي تُحلّ هنا تتراوح من الصعوبات المالية وصولاً إلى الأمراض الشديدة. في اليوم الذي التقطت فيه هذه الصورة، تم تقييد 15 شخصاً راشداً يعانون من أمراض عقلية بالسلاسل وبالأشجار أو الأعمدة بينما يتنظرون الشفاء من خلال الصلاة. تواجد بعض منهم في هذا الموقع منذ أكثر من سنة. شمال توغو، سبتمبر 2015.
