Gabon is the central African country with 1.5 million people. It got its independence from France in 1960 and French is the Official language of Gabon. LA POSTE issues very limited number of stamps. The one used in the cover was issued in 2013 for the 100th Anniversary of the Albert Schweitzer Hospital. Mr.James sent this cover from the Lambarene, the capital city of the Moyen-Ogooue province. Incidentally Albert Schweitzer established his hospital in 1913 at Lambarene. Thanks a lot Mr. James.
