Save young people waiting for surgery


I wrote to you recently about Ana, Maria, Anina and Jose who will wake up to another Christmas morning, safe and well after having life-saving heart surgery this year. It’s a relief to know they can look forward to a healthy future, no longer struggling to try and stay alive.

Sadly, the demand for our heart health services continues to grow.  I’m staggered that one in 28 people has rheumatic heart disease (RHD) in Timor-Leste, a country only an hour’s flight away from Australia. Our dedicated partners and volunteers are desperate to continue running our prevention, education and clinical care programs to support people living with debilitating heart disease, before surgery becomes their only option for survival.

Give the gift of life this Chistmas

Every life is precious. It’s distressing to know that most of our young patients have heart conditions that are easily preventable and treatable, if only they could access the same heart health services that we take for granted.
This year has been tough on everybody and we appreciate your support. Whether you donated, attended an online event, volunteered or even shared one of our inspiring stories – your ongoing commitment to improve access to heart health services in Timor-Leste has helped save lives. As part of our community of supporters you have remained strong, and now Ana, Maria, Anina and Jose are thriving thanks to you.
Please consider donating to our Christmas appeal. Every dollar counts towards helping to save more lives.

David Marlow
Chief Executive Officer
