The Apostle Fred Osei Annin was born on the 28th of November 1955 and is an ordained minister who has been working in the Pastoral ministry full time since 1982. He had his ministerial training at the Full Gospel Bible College and the Fountain Gate Bible Seminary in Ghana where he obtained the bachelor of ministerial theology degree. After his graduation from the Seminary, he worked with the Full Gospel Church in Tema, Ghana for 8 years. In 1990 he was invited to the UK by the Chalk Farm Baptist Church in London for a missionary trip to minister in churches across England and finally did an interview with the Cross Rhythms Magazine about his successes in the worship ministry in Ghana. In 1992 he returned to the UK to begin his ministry as directed by the Holy Spirit. In 1997 he established the Actionplus Foundation which is now a leading Global HIV advocacy organisation. He is also the General Overseer of Joy City Chapel International.
In the UK and in Ghana, he continues to challenge the myths within the Christian communities about HIV/AIDS. He has delivered training to educate Pastors and community leaders on the facts about HIV. He has also spoken out on the BBC against churches who tell patients to rely on prayer alone for their healing, ignoring medical treatment.
We believe that ACTION speaks louder than words. Actionplus Foundation exists to demonstrate that we have the strength and power to alleviate poverty, sicknesses and suffering from our world today to make it a better place to live tomorrow for all people affected by HIV.
He has led and delivered different kinds of projects initiated by the Actionplus Foundation including: Take Action Now, Challenge And Break HIV Stigma, Your Health Is Your Life (one stop health shop) the GLOBDOPAH Network of Pastors and church leaders and many more.
The Take Action Now Against HIV/AIDS (The TANNAH) Project which was created by Apostle Fred Osei Annin and the Actionplus Foundation has now become a worldwide module being used to fight against stigma and discrimination operating in the church and other faith communities within the BAME population. Many organisations and institutions around the world have invited Fred to give presentations and Key Note speeches about how this successful intervention can be replicated to end HIV in our world by organising training and holding conferences on HIV around the world.
As a result of our commitment to the vision and mission of our Founder and CEO over two decades ago we at Actionplus Foundation In the UK and Africa are very thankful to God for how far he has brought us in this crucial battle, being a charity classified as small as we are.
