    About Us


    Kanu Heart Foundation, a charity organisation set up by the Nigerian International football star, Nwankwo Kanu on 21st July 2000, has metamorphosed into a colossus with great achievements both in local and international circles.
    The primary aim is to “put back smiles” to the faces of Nigerians and Africa's “BLUE CHILDREN/YOUNG ADULTS” who suffer from various heart defects. Our recipients include any young children who would not survive to see their fifth birthdays without correctional proceedures and many who would not live a normal life expectancy, without the surgery needed.

    » Nwankwo Kanu

    Our patients cannot afford the high cost of open heart surgeries, without the help of oragnisations like ours.
    By May 2008, over 310 benefited from the charity's mission statement.

    The organization is not a "scam."

    They have a "scam alert" on their website letting people know that there have been FAKE sites pretending to be their organization in order to get money from people.

    This organization is legit. They just want the public to know HOW to test their validity/credibility by their official website and office locations.
