Ex-Nigeria international, Nwankwo Kanu has revealed that beneficiaries of the Kanu Heart Foundation who were in India recently for heart surgery would soon be returning to Nigeria.
The founder of the heart foundation expressed his delight that there were no casualties during the surgery while thanking Nigerians for the usual support and prayers.
According to the ex-player, five out of the batch slated for surgery this month traveled to Nigeria with the foundation taking care of the bills.
The Kanu Heart Foundation was established in 2000 to help underprivileged African children and young adults, living with different heart ailments in Nigeria and other African countries respectively, obtain the cardiac surgical operations needed.
So far, the Foundation has spent about $4.2 million, an average of $10,000.00 per person, for surgeries outside Nigeria and has successfully helped 538 children of varying ages get open heart surgeries.
