Order of Malta Australia


Donors provide infrastructure for Timor-Leste Humanitarian Shipments


Mr Carlo Randazzo at the warehouse space in Darwin

Since 2002 the Order has been providing humanitarian support to the people of Timor-Leste. This has frequently included the shipment of pharmaceuticals, hospital equipment and vehicles from Australia to Timor-Leste. Logistically this has been very difficult and time-consuming to coordinate.

Thankfully, three supporters of the Order’s work in Timor-Leste have stepped forward to provide facilities and equipment to assist with this process.

Mr Carlo Randazzo has generously provided warehouse space in Darwin for use by the Order. The warehouse will take receipt of supplies from around the country and store them while they await the shipment to Dili.

As a many of the consignments contain pharmaceuticals, Mr Kevin Malouf, Managing Director at Price and Speed Pty Ltd, has donated a refrigerated container to store medicines delivered to the warehouse in Darwin.

Mr Alan Jape JP, Group Managing Director at the Jape Group Australia has also generously provided a warehouse in Dili to receive the shipments when they arrive in Timor-Leste. From here the consignments are distributed, free of charge, to clinics around the country.

“These generous gifts mean that we now have an efficient infrastructure to support the ongoing supply of pharmaceuticals and equipment to clinics in Timor-Leste’ said David Scarf AM, Ambassador of the Order of Malta to the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste. “Not only does this facilitate the logistics of the shipments, but the cost saving is substantial. It will greatly assist us in carrying out our work serving the poor and the sick in Timor. On behalf of the Order of Malta, I would like to thank these individuals for their generosity.”

There is an ongoing need for pharmaceuticals at the clinics we support in Timor-Leste. If you are able to help, please donate using our secure online gateway.
