VOOM Foundation
The VOOM Foundation is an international medical humanitarian organization created by Vincent Ohaju in Duluth, MN in 2004.


The VOOM Foundation is a private international organization. Most of its members are doctors and health workers, but many other support professions contribute to the VOOM Foundation's smooth functioning. All of them agree to honor the following principles:

  • The VOOM Foundation offers assistance to populations in distress, to victims of natural or man-made disasters and to victims of armed conflict, without discrimination and irrespective of race, religion, creed or political affiliation.
  • The VOOM Foundation observes neutrality and impartiality in the name of universal medical ethics and the right to humanitarian assistance and demands full and unhindered freedom in the exercise of its functions.
  • The VOOM Foundation's volunteers work hard to respect their professional code of ethics and to maintain complete independence from all political, economic and religious powers.

As volunteers, members are aware of the risks and dangers of the mission they undertake, and have no right to compensation for themselves or their beneficiaries other than that which The VOOM Foundation is able to afford them.


“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love."

~ Mother Teresa


The VOOM Foundation relies on public support to provide basic medical services to the millions of Nigerian people in need, and to train,equip, and improve the skills of the dedicated Nigerian physicians and other health care providers, who work tirelessly under difficult circumstances to care for their fellow Nigerians.

VOOM Foundation aims to provide humanitarian medical assistance independent of political, religious, economic or other narrow interests.
