Dear Friends & Family,
I am headed to Nigeria in May 2019 on my very first open-heart medical mission trip. I am so excited to be going on this journey to help and meet the great people of Nigeria and give my talents and efforts to help save lives. As many of you know, last year my father experienced this journey and he will be returning for his second trip and I have been wanted to go ever since he returned. I am anxious to serve. I have been recruited to help VOOM Foundation with administrative duties and I look forward to the work. Please consider supporting my goals to help save one life by providing surgery through this donation page. Below is more information on VOOM Foundation and how VOOM is leading the country in open-heart surgery!
Thank you for your consideration!
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 leads all health organizations in open-heart in the country. The long-term goal of VOOM Foundation is to create a sustaining healthcare program based on quality that provides impartial healthcare to everyone despite their ability to pay.
