East Timor Hearts Fund

We're mending broken hearts. Join us!

East Timor Hearts Fund is Australia's only medical NGO dedicated to providing life-saving heart surgery in Australia for young people from Timor-Leste (East Timor), as well as heart-health education, prevention and research projects.


Please take a look around our website for details on our work and how you can get involved in making a real and lasting difference to the health of our neighbours in Timor-Leste.

Every patient is special. But some truly capture our hearts. Three-year-old Nelsia is one of them. Our paediatric heart specialist Dr Ari Horton explains why.
