Just back from Nigeria where he has been participating in meetings as one of the recently appointed and inaugurated members of Imo State’s Governor-Elect, Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha’s Transition Committee, Dr. Obilo Iwuozo, the brain behind the Nigerian Healthcare Foundation, NHF, has said that this year’s Faces of Hope Gala will be bigger and better than those of the previous years.

The Gala holds tomorrow, Saturday, April 27, 2019 at the Robert Treat Hotel, 50 Park Place, Newark, New Jersey, NJ 07102 with the Cocktail Hour of the event taking place from 6.00 PM while the Award Gala with Dancing to Follow is from 7.00 PM.

Dr. Iwuozo is a member of the critical Health Sub Committee of the Imo State Transition Committee and is, with other members of the group, participating in drawing up a road map for the incoming Governor.

The NHF that he heads  organizes highly successful Annual Mission Trips to Imo State, Nigeria, targeted at redressing ‘the deterioration of the health of many Nigerians, especially the less privileged, due to problems such as poverty, hunger, and disease.”

The 2019 Mission Trip, according to Dr. Iwuozo, who used the opportunity of his visit to Nigeria to perfect arrangements for the Mission Trip at the Nigerian end, takes place from July 6 to 20, 2019, the goal being to “drastically improve, not only the health conditions in Nigeria but also the state of social welfare” of the people.


Through these Mission Trips, “donated medicines and medical supplies reach impoverished and isolated communities where even basic medical care is inaccessible to the poor or often non-existent.”


The NHF has on its Board of Directors, Chief Dr. Obilo who is also the                                                                                    President, Obilo Pediatrics Associates, PC; Lolo Mrs Rossana Obilo, Vice President, Newark Board of Education; Sir Clement Ezeh, Zheer Development Corporation; Dr. Michael Giuliano, Seton Hall Hackensack Meridian Medical School and Jeryl Turco Maglio, Trustee, Dolores Turco Foundation.

Other distinguished members of the Board are Dr. Josefina Miranda, Children of Joy Pediatrics; Ms Nimi Amachree Esq. Consulate General of Nigeria, New York; Dr. Mrs. Nkechi Nwafili, Merck Corporation and Mrs. Ijeoma Obilo Faison (Executive Director).

The Faces of Hope Gala 2019 promises to surpass the events of the past, going by the level of preparations so far made and by the array of dignitaries from all walks of life that have confirmed that they will grace this year’s Gala.

Chairman of the event is Rosa Josefina Miranda, MD, CEO Children of Joy Pediatrics while the Distinguished 2019 Honorees are Vivian Nwakah, Co-founder, Medsaf (for Face of Hope Award) and Dr. Ola Orekunrin Brown, Founder & CEO Flying Doctors Nigeria (for Image of Hope Award).

The full Honorees list would be unveiled at the event. The attire for the Gala is traditional or black tie.

Individuals, groups and corporations are still being invited to partner with NHF in their labor of love aimed at giving hope to the hopeless.

The categories of sponsorship include Presenting Sponsor (Diamond), Benefactor of Hope (Platinum), Leader of Hope (Gold) and Patron of Hope (Silver).

. .

Tickets to the event are denominated in categories of Patron of Hope, Champion of Hope and Gala Ticket and prospective sponsors of the Mission Trip are to contact the organizers of this leading charity organization which is also behind the Nigeria Smiles Campaign.

The NHF runs the Nigeria Smiles Campaign throughout the year to collect much needed medical, hygiene, and school supplies to distribute to the patients that visit their temporary Clinic over the course of the Mission.

Individuals, groups or corporations interested in being part of the Campaign are also  invited to partner with the NHF to implement this laudable community service initiative.
