A shot in the arm for our penicillin program - thanks Pfizer Australia

A huge thanks to our excellent friend Pfizer, which has generously donated a whopping two pallets of penicillin. The medication will help us to extend preventative treatment to even more patients, stopping the development of deadly rheumatic heart disease. An equally big thanks to the always resourceful Anne Maree Mugavin of St John of God Warrnambool (pictured with Dr Noel and a fraction of the medicinal booty) for helping us solve the considerable challenge of getting the penicillin to Timor-Leste. There is currently a significant shortage of this life-saving drug in Timor-Leste, so we are proud to team with our partners to make this medicine available to those who desperately need it.
