Flood Relief Appeal
Over the Easter weekend Timor was devastated by massive flooding. The flooding was widespread and banks of rivers and canals broke after 350mm of rain fell in two and a half days. The impact has been catastrophic. Roads and bridges have been washed away, homes and businesses have been destroyed, along with food and precious health supplies.
At the time of the disaster Dili was already in lockdown due to COVID-19, and so there is enormous concern about further spread of COVID-19 among those evacuated from their homes. There are also great fears about other diseases such as, dengue, diarrhoea and wound infections due to dirty flood waters.
Helping Timor Now
Funds are urgently needed to support the health response to the catastrophic flooding.
TCF would like to support the work of Maluk Timor, a Timorese Health Agency working hard to provide medical care and support to people of Timor at this time. Sadly, most of their resources and supplies have been damaged or destroyed. Financial support provided to Maluk Timor will assist them in keeping essential services operational.
