Explore Space or Save Lives?
Mercy Isichei never set out to be a doctor, much less a surgeon. She dreamt of being an aerospace engineer. When her options to do so became limited by her geographical location, Mercy thought “medicine sounded interesting” so, with her family’s blessings, she pursued a career in medicine. Once she obtained her degree and was in her residency program, she discovered she liked the challenge and emotional reward of being a surgeon. Space would have to wait!
As an integral part of Faith Alive Hospital, Mercy was present at its conception. Prior to meeting her husband Dr Chris, she also envisioned opening a clinic that offered free medical care to her community. She was Chris’s biggest supporter when opening Faith Alive and she has been providing surgical care and saving lives there ever since."
