We are hugely proud of the calibre of our volunteer medical team here at East Timor Hearts Fund. Our board member, cardiac surgeon Associate Professor Andrew Cochrane, won an Australia Day award two years ago for his work in developing countries, including Timor-Leste.
Andrew has operated on a number of our patients, including teenager Lucas, who had successful surgery for a hole in his heart last March. Andrew has taken part in numerous overseas surgical trips to Timor-Leste and elsewhere, and this week flew out to Sri Lanka for a two week surgical mission with a team of Melbourne colleagues.
