Our final newsletter for 2013 is out now! You can download it here.

Please share it with your friends and networks (and if you are not receiving it directly, please use the signup feature on our Facebook page or website to add yourself to the mailing list).

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.

You can donate via our secure online fundraising portal www.givenow.com.au/easttimorhearts or see our website for offline options www.easttimorheartsfund.org.au/get-involved/

Thank you to all who have supported our work. We wish you all a happy and safe festive season.
