Make sure that you do not cause more problem to the foundation. You can dig out the crumbling cement and squirt in fresh cement. Make sure you pack it in real good.

What I would probably do is simply replace the mortar. Either do it yourself or pay someone to do it for you. That is the best thing that you can do.
