I am working to help support one open-heart surgery procedure for VOOM Foundation. Each year VOOM Foundation assembles a team of medical volunteers and performs heart surgery to patients that will die without their help. I want to help provide this service and hope you will consider supporting my efforts to raise funds for the cause. Below is more information on VOOM Foundation.
In 2014, VOOM Foundation through a partnership with the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, restarted the once abandoned open-heart program in Nigeria. Nigerian’s suffering from heart disease either traveled out of the country for surgery or died. In Nigeria, with the population of 175M at the time, it was the only opportunity for Nigerians suffering from heart disease to get surgery. VOOM travels several times a year to Nigeria to perform life-saving surgery to those in need. To date, VOOM Foundation has performed a total of 164 open-heart cases and leads all other health organizations in the entire country. The long-term goal of VOOM Foundation is to create a sustaining healthcare program that provides impartial healthcare to everyone despite their ability to pay.
