Dr Robert Peprah-Gyamfi is a Ghanaian-born Family Dr, preacher, radio/internet evangelist, author and human rights campaigner. He is the UK-based founder of registered charity Poverty Crusaders and his books, which spread the message of social justice and salvation, have each won critical acclaim. His newest book, "Poverty Crusade", is out now.
His undocumented birth was about 60 yrs ago at Mpintimpi, a little village 150 kilometres to the N of Accra, Ghana’s capital city.
As a young schoolboy he had to face a catalogue of difficulties and challenges, surviving illnesses and horrendous treatments by traditional doctors, and attending school in spite of having to traverse remote bush paths.
After completing his 6th Form education in Ghana, he managed under challenging circumstances to make it to the then West Germany in 1982.
Overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds in his new environment, he was accepted to the Hanover Medical School in 1984.
On completion of his medical training as a Family Doctor he practiced in Germany before moving to the UK in 2006. Dr Peprah-Gyamfi combines his work as a GP with writing and evangelism. He has so far written 18 books covering various topics, including Christianity, health education and burning socio-political issues.
He is married to Rita, a fellow soldier of the Cross of Calvary. The pair have 3 lovely children: Karen, David and Jonathan.
Dr Peprah-Gyamfi in his own words: “Having, through the hand of Providence, escaped the deep abyss of deprivation and poverty I was born into in the humble settings of my little village Mpintimpi, to qualify as a GP in the affluent West, I feel duty bound, in my own small way, to help the residents of my place of birth in particular and the disadvantaged in general, escape from destitution, want, deprivation and what have you.”
