Surgeons Perform Lifesaving Surgery in Melbourne to Save East Timorese Boy
An Australian charity with the support of health experts have performed life-saving heart surgery on a sick East Timorese boy in Melbourne.
Until last week, 11-year-old East Timorese boy Jeca Periera had not ventured outside of the Timorese capital of Dili.
So it was hardly surprising that a life-saving journey to Melbourne last week was at times an overwhelming one.
A case of rheumatic fever as a young child damaged the valves in Jeca's heart, leaving him breathless, dangerously underweight and unable to attend his school classes.
