Default Corner of outside foundation broke apart

There is a nice chunk of my outside foundation wall where the rear & side of house meet has broken off. I also get a pretty decent draft in that corner when I'm in the basement.

Any ideas how to fix ? Just new cement and build up ? Anything needed to adhere new & old cement Etc ?

Picture to follow later today

Thanks alot

Drill some holes and place some rebar peices with a apoxy and you can buy some glue made for this you just paint it on the old when doing the job, it must be wet when adding the new concrete. It isn't much more than watered down white wood glue.
