Medical Clinic Timor-Leste – Planning for long term sustainability


The Order of Malta medical clinic in Dili continues to provide world class medical treatment to the people of Timor-Leste. However the funding for this facility has been dependent on one-off grants and large gifts from individual donors.

A major goal for the clinic in 2020 is to increase the clinic’s capabilities to include radiology and pathology services and offer an expanded service to expatriates and corporate clients. The intention is that these fee-earning medical activities would not only pay for the running of the ‘free’ clinic but would also enable it to expand its services beyond the clinic walls and reach out to the poor and sick in their homes and communities.

To enable this, there is a need to purchase the equipment and employ new medical staff, so that resources are not taken away from the poor. We are seeking donors able to make large gifts that will enable the clinic to be sustainable for years to come. These donations will benefit thousands of poor and sick in Timor-Leste.

  • $15,000 would pay the annual salary of a Timorese doctor
  • $35,000 equipment for x-ray services
  • $50,000 equipment for pathology services

If you are interested in funding one of these initiatives, please contact 

Gifts of all sizes are gratefully received and donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. Make a donation to our Order of Malta Medical Clinic.

The clinic provides medical care and health education to financially disadvantaged Timorese with a focus on the care of women and children.
