“Positively impacting Nigerian healthcare...for good.”
WHAT WE DO

WE HELP THE UNDERSERVED GET ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE

The Nigerian healthcare system is poorly developed. Despite Nigerian’s strategic position in Africa, the country is greatly underserved in the healthcare sphere. Health facilities (health centers, personnel, and medical equipment) are inadequate, especially in rural areas.

Over 95% of the people in Nigeria live without essential medical services.
In 2016 the World Health Organization ranked Nigeria 187 out of 190 countries in healthcare.
Nigeria has a population just over 188,000,000.

OUR PURPOSE

WHY WE DO THIS

VOOM Foundation is a private international medical humanitarian organization made up of volunteer doctors, nurses, health workers and many other support professions who contribute to the mission of the VOOM Foundation. Our mission is to provide impartial sustainable healthcare programs dedicated to quality, with a particular interest in supporting the underprivileged and underserved. Our long-term goal is to develop a sustainable hospital system dedicated to quality, with an emphasis on education and training, public health and prevention, health fairs and outreach, providing new state of the art medical equipment and by providing life-saving heart procedures through our medical mission program.

Since March 2013, VOOM has delivered a total of 12 clinical medical missions and assisted in five others, executing a total of 164 open-heart procedures since the inception of our organization. This number of cases in the past three years exceeds the total number of cases performed in the previous 26 years of existence prior to closure of the program in 2000. It is the goal of VOOM and University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital to perform over 100 cases a year, if awarded adequate funding and support.

GLOBAL IMPACT

WHAT OUR FRIENDS OVER THE WORLD ARE SAYING

I’m a survivor of open heart surgery. I give credit to the donors and Voom Foundation for saving my life. Without them by now I wouldn’t have been alive. I thank them so much for saving my life. I’m grateful to them.

We don’t want to save just one life, we want to save thousands. We don’t just want to make an impression, we want to make an impact.

Shawn Andaya-Pulliam

Executive Director

On behalf of my family, I’m very grateful to Voom Foundation for all the works they are doing worldwide. Most especially the work they are doing for my dad today.
