Project update – pictures of the Ambulance delivery to the Maubara clinic in Timor-Leste


We recently resported on the success of our campaign to provide ambulances for medical clinics in rural areas of Timor-Leste that would provide primary health care for over 1,200 families who would not normally have access to medical services.

This project has only been possible thanks to the generosity of so many supporters. Particular mention must be made of St John Ambulance Corps in Western Australia who donated the two ambulances. Thank you to everyone who donated to this project, ensuring that the ambulances were fully equipt. Thank you also to  Jebsens Shipping and the RAC who provided freight services, Jason SignMakers in Western Australian for completing the signage on the vehicles and SMOM Embassy Charge de Affaires, Mrs Piedade Reymao, and friends of the Order in Timor-Leste, Edwin Yap and Abessy Bento, for their efforts gettong the ambulances off the wharf.

The ambulances have now been delivered to the clinics. View our gallary of the project:
