Below is a picture of a life we saved in December 2018. The IMPACT of Voom Foundation is tremendous. We literally carry donated valves on the plane, performs open-heart surgery to dying patients and nurse them back to health within a two-week period. Our focus is to serve indigent patients. With over 60% of the country in poverty, those who cannot afford to fly out of the country for surgery are sentenced to death. Thats where VOOM has stepped in to address the need. VOOM has provided over 200 surgeries and leads the entire country in open-heart procedures performed. I am so grateful to be part of this organization and to impact the lives of the worlds poor and vulnerable fill my heart beyond explanation. Thank you to all my friends who continue to support my work. Love you all!
In 2013, 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 173M 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 based on quality that provides impartial healthcare to everyone despite their ability to pay.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
