I am a committed board member of VOOM Foundation. We are doing great work in Nigeria, saving hundreds of lives. To do our work we rely on the generous donations of our friends, family and the community. I would be happy to visit with anyone about our work if you would like more information. Please consider a gift in any amount. Below is more information about 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 169 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.
