Dr. Sotunsa is a consultant obstetrician and gynecologist, missionary, and ordained pastor of the Seventh-day Adventist Church who commenced ministry in 1991. He is one of the founding fathers of Babcock University Teaching Hospital, Ilishan-Remo, Ogun State, Nigeria. His passion is helping young people realize their vision. He had conducted medical outreaches in all the geopolitical zones of Nigeria. He is a fellow of the West African College of Surgeons with a Master’s in Public Health and Business Administration.
Dr. Sotunsa is the co-founder and CEO of the Global Vision Support International Foundation (GVSIF). GVSIF is a faith-based non-governmental organization whose goal is to provide free healthcare services to people who cannot afford medical services all around the world. GVSIF’s main goal is to make every soul count by helping everyone discover a purpose in life, generate a personal vision, and achieve the vision in the fear of God and love for humanity.
Ratecaptain analyst had a conversation with Prof. Sotunsa to learn the principles he used to achieve so much in his foundation and what kept the vision going even though there were challenges in taking the first step.
“There were a lot of challenges when starting out, like accommodations, transportation, volunteers, and partnerships, but God has his ways of doing things and making it run smoothly,” said Prof. Sotunsa.
The striving that made the foundation stand today was a vision that I had since I was a child. Growing up in a community called Ilesan Remo was tough and rough for me, but God gave me a purpose at a young age that I must fulfill, and the purpose can be fulfilled through the foundation.
The ultimate secret to building up any business or organization is hard work, dedication, resilience, a good team that sees your vision, and God. I have worked hard to make sure that everything is running smoothly while also ensuring that all our services are tailored towards meeting the needs of those we serve with excellence and providing them with the quality care they deserve regardless of their background or financial status in life.
This knowledge has enabled us to reach out to more people from diverse communities in Nigeria and the world at large, positively impacting their lives by creating opportunities for growth and development both socially and economically.
One of the most important secrets of an organization is having a team that shares the same ideology as it and that can relate to your vision and help you achieve your goals and objectives. The Global Vision Support International Foundation would not be standing today if not for the volunteers, partners, and sponsors. Prof. Sotunsa told RateCaptain
He finally said, “I am proud to say that due diligence, along with genuine passion for what we do here at The Foundation, has helped us achieve great heights over time, leading up to now, where we stand strong despite any challenges faced along our journey. Our success story continues to be written day after day by each one of us working together towards fulfilling our mission, which is why The Foundation stands firm even when times get tough.”
