Video: The Order of Malta Medical Clinic in Dili


The Embassy of the Order of Malta in Timor Leste is about to open a medical clinic in Dili.

In a country where 1 in 6 children do not reach their 1st birthday due to treatable illnesses and malnutrition, the clinic will provide an opportunity to fulfil the Orders mission to help our Lords the poor and the sick.

The Order’s clinic will be a best-practice outpatient primary health care facility offering free medical care to impoverished Timorese families. It will have an emphasis on the provision of care to women and children.

The clinic comprises examination rooms and a procedure room, and is anticipated to treat 200 patients a day.

The below video provides an insight into this project and includes commentary from Nobel Prize Winner and Former President of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste, H.E. Jose Ramos-Horta.


Fundraising for this project is an ongoing challenge. The premises have been generously provided rent free by the developer and the first stage of the fit out has been financed by the Order’s Global Fund for Forgotten People.  However, we need funds for medical equipment and the financing of the ongoing operational costs.

Please consider supporting this project. You can make a donation using our secure PayPal facility:
