PROJECT UPDATE – Pharmaceuticals delivery to Timor-Leste


 We are pleased to confirm that we will shortly be making another Pharmaceuticals delivery to Timor-Leste. This project provides basic medicines to eight clinics in Timor-Leste that provide primary medical care at no cost to Timorese in underprivileged, urban and isolated rural areas.

 Donations to this projects are optimised with Members of the Order co-ordinating their efforts to not only purchase the medicines at discounted wholesale prices, but also sourcing warehousing and transport services at no costs.

 Pharmaceuticals provided in the shipments:

 Antibiotics for the treatment of common childhood infections, tonsillitis, pneumonia bronchitis, whooping cough.

 Multivitamin tablets – chronic malnutrition is common in Timor-Leste and supplements are vital in prevention of further health issues. Anaemia is also common in pregnancy

Asthma treatments – the shipment contains both Salbutamol to treat acute attacks and other puffers to preventer asthma.

Treatments for injuries – cuts, burns and wounds to not only provide pain relief but prevent sepsis.

Treatments for a range of medical conditions – anaphylaxis, high blood pressure, cardiac failure, parasites, worms, dermatitis, gastroenteritis and fungal infections.

Currently we are averaging two shipments a year to these clinics. However to enable the clinics to provide year-round treatment we need to provide four deliveries a year. To achieve this we need to raise a further $30,000 in 2014.
