'Please join me for barbecued corn in Dili'

Farewell Jeca

Jeca, Marquita and Alarico flew out this morning. A new heart for Jeca and a new life beckoning.
Before she boarded the plane an emotional Marquita had a final message: "Dala Ida tan obrigada barak (once again thank you so much) for everything that ETHF and everyone involved have done for my son. My family and I will never be able to repay you." 
Marquita, who has a food stall on the beach in Dili with her husband, also extended an invitation to all of our ETHF family: "I hope that you all come and visit me in Timor-Leste one day so that I can cook you all some corn free of charge as a way of saying thank you again for everything."

Tears and applause for Jeca's dream

Victoria University health forum

Jeca, Marquita and our patient support coordinator and board director Ana Saldanha were guests at a forum on health needs in Timor-Leste at Victoria University in Melbourne last night. Ana made a presentation about our work. We were quite chuffed when one of the presenters, Professor Benjamin Corte-Real from the National University of Timor-Leste (who also works in the office of the president), said: "I personally think (I am sure that everyone here in this room feels the same way) that Ms Saldanha and ETHF are doing such an amazing work to save the lives of those in need of a new heart! May God bless you always, and may you continue to do the work you are doing. Thank you so much."
But the real highlight was the thunderous applause when Ana told the crowd of Jeca's dream to be a doctor. There were lots of tears!
A big thanks to the organisers for having us along, to Jeca and Marquita for sharing their story, and to our patient support coordinator extraordinaire Ana, for sharing our successes.
