Kristie & Lexi- May. 2020 Open-Heart Mission
Support of Open-Heart Medical Mission!
HI Friends! We didn't get to go in May of 2020 due to the pandemic, but we are planning to go again this December 2021. We are headed to Nigeria to serve with VOOM Foundation's open-heart medical mission in Lagos and Calabar, Nigeria. Our prime objective is to train and educate the local medical staff while serving the poor and vulnerable patients who can't afford open-heart surgery. Can you believe that in 2013, there was not one single open-heart surgery program in Nigeria, a country of 173 million at the time, where a patient with heart disease could receive surgery? VOOM Foundation restarted the open-heart program by installing two operating theaters and four ICU beds with ventilators at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital to restart the program. We will be volunteering our services as medical volunteers and would love for you to consider a gift in any amount to support our efforts or by joining our fundraising team. Thank you in advance for any support you can provide.
