Your donations are starting to fund the roll-out of much needed relief.....
Cyclone Seroja has caused widespread damage to Timor Leste with significant damage to buildings, homes, and infrastructure such as roads in the Ainaro District. As at April 10th the cyclone caused 42 deaths across the Country, 10 of these deaths were in the Ainaro District.
Communication from the Ainaro District has been limited due to infrastructure damage; however, our local contacts report that the District is desperate for relief and recovery aid as landslides and heavy rain has blocked and swept away roads into the District.
The District is also threatened with a new COVID_19 outbreak.
Ballarat Friends of Ainaro Community Committee (BFACC) and other Ballarat organisations including Ryder-Cheshire and Teachers for Timor are working to raise money for immediate relief in the Ainaro district as well at the Klibur Domin Health Facility in Tibar near Dili.
The clean up has begun. There is much to do and our Timorese neighbours need your assistance to rebuild their lives and to keep safe and healthy. Basics such as bedding, food, water and cooking oil are being distributed initially.
