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.
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.

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.
