His visit to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), yesterday to celebrate with the patients will forever remain indelible in their mind. It was part of KHF’s end of the year programme.

Speaking at the occasion, Kanu, who was part of the historic Atlanta ’96 Olympic Games soccer gold medal, said he was happy with his project, which has been in the forefront of helping to save lives of Nigerians.

He revealed that KHF had been working with LASUTH for about five years. “To save lives and make impart, all hands must be on deck. We can’t do it all alone, and the government cannot do it all either,” Kanu stated.

Kanu Heart Foundation then donated some gift items to the patients, thereby putting smile on their faces.

The Chief Medical Director of LASUTH, Prof. Adewale Oke thanked KHF for the support, saying that it had not been easy in carrying out surgical operations on cardiac patient considering the huge cost. “Not everybody can afford the bills.”

Some of the patients who spoke with The Guardian were full of joy seeing Kanu in their midst.
