Hope Center

Located in Nigeria, Hope Center is our integrated single point-of-care facility — the first of its kind in Africa. Having our own facility makes it safer, simpler and more economical to provide quality care. 

When completed, Hope Center will host:

  • A diagnostics and medical center

  • A pharmacy

  • An eye clinic

  • A mental health/counseling clinic

  • 20 guest rooms for short-term residents


Hope Center will also showcase wellness and healthy living through:

  • A full-functioning water factory

  • Gardens for herbs and organic vegetables

  • Sports/exercise areas

  • An on-site restaurant serving healthy food

Hope Center is located in Owerri, Nigeria. The central location lets AIHWA provide for the people of Imo State and is within a reasonable drive from the neighboring states of Anambra, Abia, Ebonyi, and Enugu.


Eventually, Hope Center will serve as a home-base for AIHWA medical missions.

Proposed Hope Center


As of January 2020, the Hope Center water factory has been completed! This water factory will provide bottled water to those at Hope Center, and the surrounding community.

We currently operate on generators, but plan on strengthening our electricity by implementing solar panels throughout the center. 

With the goal of successful fundraising, we plan on having the rest of Hope Center complete by December 2020. Visit our news page to learn more.
