Our final newsletter for 2013 is out now! You can download it here.
In this bumper edition:
* 'A very happy patient': medical wrap up with Dr Noel.
* Three minutes with...meet dedicated patient support volunteer Tomasia Fernandes-Gutteres, dispenser of Timorese food and kindness.
* Food that mends broken hearts! Tuck in to a Timorese feast and help our lifesaving work.
And finally, we will be taking a brief break over the festive season, but will be back early in 2014 with Lucas and Agripino coming to Australia for surgery and another mission to Timor-Leste by Dr Noel and our volunteer medical team.
If you are one of the many who likes to make charity donations in lieu of (or as well as) gifts, please consider supporting our work this festive season. We are 100 per cent volunteer-powered at East Timor Hearts Fund, and that means that 100 per cent of public donations go toward patient care. Donate now and see instant results when Lucas and Agripino have surgery after Christmas.
Thank you to all who have supported our work. We wish you all a happy and safe festive season.
Our patient Marta had a huge day of excitement for her final day in Melbourne, with a barbecue lunch with our sponsor Macquarie Telecom, followed by a trip to the famous Myer Christmas windows, afternoon tea and then a bit of a shopping whirl. Thanks to our friends at Macquarie Telecom for organising such a great afternoon out for the girls.
Marta, her sister Celestine and Fatima had a lovely lunch today with our friends from Macquarie Telecom. We are very grateful to Andrew Grieg and Chantelle Green for showing the girls such a great time and to Macquarie Telecom for financially supporting Marta's heart procedure. Thanks also to Ralph Parkhurst for the pics.
