The organisation you'll work with
Fantsuam Foundation is committed to empowering community members, particularly women, to find means of employment and income to meet their own development needs. We are working in 50 communities across 7 Local Government areas in Kaduna State, and over 5,000 individuals benefit from Fantsuam’s services every year. We estimate that over 200,000 people have benefited either directly or indirectly from Fantsuam Foundation’s activities since it was established in Bayanloco in 2001.
Fantsum Rural Health Centre - in collaboration with Dr. Oluyombo Awojobi
The Fantsuam Rural Health Centre (FRHC) is modelled after the world-renowned Awojobi Clinic Eruwa, ACE, and under the mentorship of Nigeria’s foremost rural surgeon, Dr. Oluyombo Awojobi

- Site visit to Awojobi Clinic, Eruwa - One foreign doctor and his take on Nigeria and our health care facilities
- Eruwa biogas plant by Dr. Oluyombo Awojobi - published in Rural Surgery
The FRHC aims at becoming a model of evidence-based integrated local health service in northern Nigeria. Based on the principles of Nigeria’s premier Ibarapa Community Health Programme, the FRHC is a private primary healthcare facility providing professional and affordable rural healthcare service in rural communities of Kafanchan, Kaduna State.
Unique opportunity with training
The post comes with the benefit of an intensive all-expenses-paid, 3-months training in all aspects of rural and emergency surgery under Dr. Oluyombo Awojobi. If you are a doctor seeking career fulfilment through service in poorly-resourced rural communities this post provides a unique opportunity to be a member of a team committed to genuine giving as Ruth Bebermeyer says: "We never feel more given to, than when you take from me."
If your passion is service par excellence, providing affordable, professional surgical care for Nigeria’s rural population, you may be the doctor we are looking for. Drop me a line for further information at firstname.lastname@example.org
