African Christian Hospitals

IHCF (International Health Care Foundation) African Christian Hospitals is the supporting / facilitating organization for seven medical mission points in Africa.  For several years we have been involved with five works in West Africa, including three projects in Nigeria, and two in Ghana.  Very recently, we have become involved in East Africa with two partnerships in Tanzania, including our newest clinic, right on the Indian Ocean.

NIGERIAN CHRISTIAN HOSPITAL…

Begun in 1965 by missionary doctor, Henry Farrar and others, NCH has grown in every way through the years.  Serving the Ibo tribe and located in Abia state, near the large southern Nigerian city of Aba, NCH now includes:

  •     110 inpatient beds
  •     150 Nigerian workers
  •     Over 20,000 patients treated annually
  •     Six full time physicians
  •     2 full time chaplains serving the sick
  •     A housing compound with visitor’s house

Surgery

The motto of the hospital is, “We treat the wound; God heals it.” The hospital serves the community as a general hospital – complete with medical, surgical, pediatric, obstetrical, and outpatient services. It has long since outgrown the ability of expatriate missionary doctors and nurses to adequately staff it. Many such dedicated, hard working doctors and nurses have served faithfully at NCH since the beginning. It now functions fully with a Nigerian staff, including six Nigerian doctors.
