Faith Alive Nigeria

 

What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food . If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. James 2:14-17.

Christian Ogoegbunem Isichei is Founder and Coordinator of Faith Alive Foundation-Nigeria in Jos, Nigeria.

In 1996, Dr. Chris returned from the Fogarty grant at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque to his home in Jos with a vision to drastically improve healthcare and Social Services for the underprivileged in his country following the shocking difference he noted between developing countries like Nigeria and developed countries like USA. He holds a Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery degree, Master of Science degree in Clinical Biochemistry/Chemical Pathology from the University of Jos and a Fellowship in Chemical Pathology from the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria.

In addition to his work at Faith Alive and at the Jos University Teaching hospital, he teaches undergraduate and post graduate students/residents as Professor of Chemical Pathology at the University of Jos and Jos University Teaching Hospital. He served as an appointee of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the Medical and Dental Council Board of Nigeria from November 2013 to August 2014. He is an external Examiner to the National Post Graduate Medical College of Nigeria and some Medical schools in Nigeria. He is currently the Head of Department of Chemical Pathology of both the University of Jos and Jos University Teaching Hospital.

His surgeon wife, Dr. Mercy Wakili Isichei is an Associate Professor of Surgery and volunteers her surgical expertise at Faith Alive in addition to working as a Lecturer and Consultant General Surgeon/Surgical Oncologist at the University of Jos and Jos University Teaching Hospital as well as Bingham University Karu-Abuja-Jos. The Family also runs EPJ Gymn and Physical Therapy Center as well as Gwash-EPJ Specialist Hospital in Jos.They have three lovely children--Emily, Prince and Joseph

From the beginning, our desire has been that the people of Nigeria  and beyond will become involved and help us do His work. I sincerely hope that you will join us as well, assisting us in bringing about the fulfillment of the plan God has inspired in us – a center of excellence for His Kingdom’s sake and for medical and social care in Africa—A FAITH ALIVE TEACHING HOSPITAL. A Center of Excellence for Maternal and Child Care as well as for diagnostics are currently in place. Plans are on to commence a Center of Excellence for Paediatric care. Thanks once more for joining us accomplish this and many more
