Over the years, all at Across the Timor Sea have been very impressed with how local Timor Lestè residents get together to build or repair buildings and various infrastructure; which will be very important with the extent of storm damage this year.

All this has been complicated by the COVID lock-down restrictions.

So when we received this photo of workers painting a classroom, we were delighted that it is so close to being used. We sincerely hope it wasn’t damaged during the monsoon storms and floods.

It has been very challenging for Jan not being able to travel to Timor Lestè (as she has annually done for many years) due to COVID restrictions, because when there she is able to monitor projects and see the best ways to help.
