Aileah, and children like her is born with a death sentence. Every child born with a Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD), often known as a ‘hole in the heart’ and a Patent Ductus Arteriosis (PDA), a condition where a small duct just above the heart does not close correctly at birth, is will die prematurely – unless they undergo life-saving surgery.

Treatment for these conditions in Australia is routinely available and accessible.  For children like Aileah, who live in remote villages across Papua New Guinea, survival is not guaranteed.

The difficulty and expense of travel, a lack of resources and under-developed surgical capacity means many children die needlessly.

Your gift before 30 June can help save the lives of children like Aileah. Please help.
