Remembering Our Dearest   Dr. Lawrence - Francis Tonye Biaka Who  Passed On To Glory  On April 3, 2014. 

You Will Live Forever In Our Memories And Hearts.


Dr Lawrence Francis Tonye Biaka was born in 1939 in Cameroon. After completing his secondary and high school education in St Joseph’s College Sasse, Buea, he moved on to Nigeria for university studies with pharmacy as his first option. However, a full scholarship made him move to study medicine in India. After completing the intermediate year, he obtained a WHO scholarship to pursue studies at the University of Sarajeveo from where he obtained his degree in Medicine in 1966. He then moved to Britain where by 1974 he had obtained specialization diplomas in Obstetrics (from the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland); Anaesthesia (Royal College of Physicians of London and Royal College of Surgeons of England in association with the Faculty of Anaesthetists); and became member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

During his stay in the United Kingdom Dr. Biaka worked in many capcities: as physician, surgeon, gynaeacologists and teacher in a variety of institutions including: Eastern General Hospital Edinburgh; Hammersmith and Queen Charlotte London; St. Helier Hospital Carshalton, Surrey; etc.

On his return to Cameroon in 1977, he served as Gynaecologist – obstetrician at the Bamenda Provincial Hospital, District Hospital Bota and later started Dr. Biaka’s Cabinet which in 1982 became known as St. Veronica Medical Centre. In 1998 St. Francis School of Nursing and Midwifery was opened as a training school for nurses and in the same year Dr. Biaka was awarded Fellowship by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gyaecologists of England. The growing complex saw continuous growth and expansion with the opening of St. Francis Higher Institute of Nursing and Midwifery in 2007 and St. Francis School of Health Sciences in 2010. Today Dr. Biaka oversees a rapidly expanding complex which receives at least 500 students each year in different health professions programmes as well as meeting the needs of patients with different conditions in the St. Veronica Polyclinic.` He received a certificate of recognition from the Cameroon Medical Council in 2010 for a devoted and selfless service to humanity and upholding the dignity and ideals of the medical profession.

He devoted his life to caring for patients especially women and children. He was a philantrophist and devoted Christain of the Roman Catholic church. Pope benedict XVI impacted on him an Apostolic blessing in 2012.

He is survived by his wife Mrs Francisca Biaka, seven children, thirteen grand children, brothers, sisters and many relatives, staff and students of St Francis medical Institute, as well as medical colleagues.

You were a STAR and my IDOL

Remembering how you took care of me during all my pregnancies, assisting me to have healthy kids - I thank you for all you did
The Lord will bless you forever and will empower your children to be a replica of you at all times and in whatever they take up to do.

Maboh M Nkwati Match On with the Saints! April 30, 2014
You were an embodiment of greatness and selflessness. You worked for the common good and was passionate about excellence. You wanted your patients to receive the best of care and so you will never tolerate any unprofessional attitude from your staff. Your vision has impacted many lives and we thank God that He gave you the wisdom and grace to give life to that vision which has transformed a little known Dr. Biaka's surgery to an internationally acclaimed citadel of learning and vessel of holistic care. You vision will live on because you prepared your staff to work even without you. I remember your sincere appreciations to me when we made significant achievements. You never failed to say "well done" and "thank you". Dear Dr. Biaka may the angels and saints welcome you in their number as you move into eternity. Pray for us and may you find peace in the bossom of Abraham our father in faith

Rest in Perfect Peace
