Kanu Heart Foundation: Proving sceptics wrong

1 Mins read


The Kanu Heart Foundation is often in the the news …and rightly so!

When Kanu set up his foundation in 2002 and officially commenced operations in London and Nigeria to help people living with different heart ailments in Nigeria and other African countries, I as many others were skeptical about its long term viability. Far from it, they have weathered the storms and have survived, staying focused. I just got a notice of seminars being held in Lagos and Abuja…in addition to their routine activities of giving kids a new shot at life. In a recent interview with Uche Nworah he informed that that the foundation has literally given 400 kids something to live for. Apart from his own funds, he has mobilized musicians, and his high earning baller colleagues.

So…is this blog just to sing his praises? Partly…but thats not the whole story. One cannot help but wondering what all our rich and famous in Nigeria are doing…apart from building yet another edifice. What of all our other top earning footballers….Do they need their own hearts to fail to think of how to give back? What of all the politicians that take out full page adverts in newspapers to celebrate yet another birthday. Is it not time to think….think about the Bill Gates and the Warren Buffets ….

Kudos to the Kanu Heart foundation for the work they continue to do…. we are proud of you…Aluta
