Changing Lives

Faith Alive Foundation in Jos, Nigeria (FAF-N) operates a hospital which offers free health care to about 36,000 patients a year –many of whom have no other access to care. The story of FAF-N's transformation since its inception is truly incredible. Armed with only $333 in 1996 and a vision to build "an African Mayo Clinic," Dr. Chris Isichei started Faith Alive Foundation as a counseling center in a four-room donated apartment. Today Faith Alive Foundation in Nigeria runs its own three-story hospital with plans for expansion and satellite clinics is rural areas. 150 Nigerian staff and volunteers provide care at no cost to the poorest of the poor in a region hard-hit by poverty and HIV/AIDS.

The Faith Alive Foundation’s hospital and Foundation plays a key role in the front line battle against HIV/AIDS via an integrated program of education, diagnosis, and treatment.
