Timorese Olympian Anche Cabral’s heart health mission: “It’s not easy for them to survive”


Hi I’m Anche and I just want to say I’m
supporting the East Timor Hearts Fund program which is helping Timorese young people
that have heart disease. I have seen that they have done really good
work sending young people to Australia for heart surgery, really
successful. Because I know that for people with this disease it’s not easy for them to survive. I know because my sister had the same thing which
is really hard because I was the one taking care of her. But then it was a
help, she was sent to Australia and then had the surgery. It all went well and now she’s better and really happy but of course still continuing to get her
penicillin injections. And also one of my brothers has heart problems also and he is now taking penicillin injections every month. taking penicillin injection every month. I’m so thankful for the East Timor Hearts Fund program that keeps supporting the Timorese that are having heart problems. So so thank you!
