Meeting Report 3321

David Altmann and Simon Sickerdick reported to the Rotary Club of Murray Bridge on their trip to Timor Leste (East Timor) to work with villagers on Rotary Water and Sanitation Projects They and Lynn Sickerdick along with members from Stirling and Mt Barker Clubs went for 7 days to Aileu in the centra highlands, to three schools in Talitu which have 568 students started in 2018, Berkati Village project was started in 2008-10, Fatuk-Hun School and Ornai School which has 56 Students.
They worked in partnership with the two Rotary Clubs of Dili. The projects included gravity fed and electric pump water systems creek sourced with filter tanks, holding tanks, hand washing stations, and toilets. Some 1500 people benefited from the project. East Timor is a close neighbour to Australia which in the 16th Century was a Portuguese colony and then occupied by the Indonesians between 1974 till 1998. The 1991 Dili Massacre was a turning point for the independence cause and Timor Leste is now a Soverign State after a UN sponsored agreement between Indonesia and Portugal in 1998. The project was funded by Rotary International District 9520 Grant and the three Rotary Clubs.
