Christina Doyle- May 2024 Mission

Join My Efforts to Save Lives in Nigeria!

Dear Friends & Family,


In May 2024, I will be traveling to Oraifite, Nigeria, to participate in an open-heart medical mission with the VOOM Foundation.


I am serving to help other people as well as to venture outside my comfort zone. I am hoping to challenge my ideas of normal while still being an active participant in something amazing. I most look forward to the people and hearing the different stories they have to share


Our team will utilize our expertise to train and educate the local cardiac staff at the Dame Irene Okwuosa Memorial Hospital. We will also focus our care on underserved patients and those who cannot afford the high cost of open-heart surgery.


In 2013, there was not a single facility in Nigeria where you could receive heart surgery. These findings ignited the VOOM Foundation to begin partnering with local hospitals and providing infrastructure, equipment, and supplies to start local programs.  We are proud to say that in 2023, VOOM led all healthcare facilities in Nigeria in open-heart procedures performed. An amazing accomplishment, but it just goes to show how much work needs to be done, and I am excited to be part of this mission.


If you feel called, I am raising funds to help cover the extra costs of travel, sourcing of medical supplies, patient surgeries, and ensuring the longevity of VOOM Foundation and our mission program.   



With much love and gratitude,


Christina
