I want to make a difference! I don’t want to help save a few lives, I want to save thousands and make a REAL IMPACT in this world! I have joined VOOM Foundation, a non-profit humanitarian organization that travels to Africa to perform open-heart surgery. Our medical staff travels to Nigeria with heart valves in hand, performs open heart surgery on dying indigent patients and our nurses heal them back within a two week mission period. I am extremely passionate about this work and want to help move the needle and do my part to create CHANGE! VOOM restarted the open-heart program in 2013 and until then the sick had no other option. I am working to raise both awareness and funds for the program. $5,000 allows one patient to have heart surgery! Please help me deliver!

ABOUT VOOM: 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.
