How you can help

Thank you for considering supporting our work. Your contribution is absolutely vital



VOOM Open-Heart Medical Missions to the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital are made possible through the generous support of our contributors.  Since March 2013, VOOM has delivered a total of 15 medical missions, executing a total of 130 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 2000.    It is the goal of VOOM and UNTH to perform up to 200 cases a year, if awarded adequate funding and support. 

VOOM Foundation, our patients, their families and the people of Nigeria sincerely thank you for your generosity.
