Changing Lives

Faith Alive Foundation in Jos, Nigeria (FAF-N) operates a hospital which offers free health care to an average of over 4,000 patients per month –many of whom have no other access to care. The story of FAF-N's transformation since its inception is truly incredible. Armed with $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. At the same time, Faith Alive also offers services that address a variety of other issues – ranging from basic nutritional needs to emotional, economic, educational and spiritual needs. This holistic approach to health care is designed to treat the whole person. These services include, but are not limited to:

  • Home-based medical care for those who are unable to come to the clinic

  • Awareness counseling regarding HIV prevention and care - designed to reduce the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS and provide hope for "living positively"

  • Support groups for those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS

  • Counseling and prayer for patients before and after HIV tests and throughout their treatment

  • A clothing and food bank for patients

  • Skills-acquisition training designed to assist patients in being self-sufficient and providing for their families

    and communities
