We're excited! Our latest patient, 16 year old Olga, arrives tomorrow, along with her mum Ligia.
Olga will have a heart operation this week at Royal Melbourne Hospital.
We caught up with Olga in Dili recently, and asked her how she was feeling about coming to Australia for surgery. "Thank you for helping me to be healthy again," she said. "I hope all the doctors can help and support me to be healthy again so I can finish school. I would like to be a school teacher like my teacher Amelia, who is very good."
Please keep an eye on our blog for updates about Olga.
