Volunteers Strengthen Maluk Timor
“If our hopes of building a better and safer world are to become more than wishful thinking, we will need the engagement of volunteers more than ever.” — Kofi AnnanAustralians and Timorese are connected; across that tiny strip of ocean we share a long history, we share family, friends and colleagues. Apparently, we now even share crocodiles – although I think the science on that one is still pending! COVID-19 has been a great opportunity for Australia to step forward and support our close neighbour.”
The next big challenge is resumption of primary health care services. As we farewell a number of our long standing volunteers we are pleased to welcome 12 new international volunteers – from all corners of the globe – Australia, Northern Ireland, Ireland, England, Scotland, Singapore and Germany. We are sure these new volunteers will bring with them skills, expertise and new experiences to bolster the training., education and mentoring in the primary health care centres.We look forward to the new team arriving over the next few months.
