Make a real difference to the health of East Timor!

With Your Help We Can Save Lives in East Timor by:

Safely Delivering Babies

Infant mortality in East Timor is 300 times higher than in countries like Australia. With your money we can continue to give mothers the ability to give birth in a safe environment.

Fighting Child Malnutrition

Malnutrition is rampant with 1 in 3 children have stunted growth and nearly half are significantly malnourished. With your help we can provide food, education and the environment for these children to reach their potential.

Controlling Tuberculosis

TB is at endemic proportions in Timor Leste. With your donations we can treat more people with this entirely curable disease.

Treating Cancer

When a patient presents with cancer, we simply don't have the money to buy all the necessary chemotherapy drugs to treat them. We can sometimes give pain relief but this must be rationed. With more donations we can begin treating cancer in East Timor.
