A shipping container was sent from Sydney full of medical supplies for local hospitals and clinics.
Two containers were sent to Timor in this period. We were able to send and distribute plenty of supplies and clothes for the pre-schools and children's programs. We also were able to send second hand furiniture and other equipment from a nursing home in Parks NSW.
So in 2016 we asked for resources for Timor and we have them. Warehouses overflowing with beds, and examination tables, and chairs and all sorts of different secondhand medical equipment that has been updated in Australian Hospitals, but a world better than they have in Timor. Timor hospitals and clinics are desperate for very basic resources. Our team in Timor frequently bring people into clinics and hospitals to find there are not enough beds or there is no wheelchair, or there is a lack of basic cabinets or basic supplies such as medical gloves and first aid supplies. We were able to ship these, and many other donations, over to Timor Leste with help from you.
