In May 2018, Tara and I are headed to Nigeria on a open-heart medical mission with VOOM Foundation. We are excited for this opportunity to serve some of the world most poor and vulnerable people. For these patients we are their only hope. Without our service, their outcome will be grave. We are very excited about this opportunity to serve I would like to ask for your support to help us deliver.
Below is more information on VOOM Foundation. A gift in any amount will be truly and greatly appreciated!
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.
