VOOM Open-Heart Medical Missions to the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital are made possible through the generous support of our contributors. Since our first mission trip in 2013, VOOM Foundation has coordinated a total of 12 medical missions and assisted in five others, executing a total of 164 open-heart procedures. This total of cases in the past three years exceeds the total number of cases performed in the previous 26 years of existence prior to closure of the program in 2003. It is the goal of VOOM Foundation to perform up to 100 cases a year, if adequate funding and support are available.
VOOM Foundation, our patients, their families and the people of Nigeria sincerely thank you for your generosity.
