Assisting Bairo Pite Clinic in Dili

Preparing to go to Dili (Timor-Leste) to help Dr Dan Murphy (photo) and Bairo Pite Clinic.

BPC has experienced serious challenges the last year, and is now forced to close down wards and activities due to lack of funding. They used to get government contributions, but this has disappeared (political scene rather unstable now before new elections in May), and other sources have dried up as well. Not good for the busiest clinic in the East Timorese capital – nor for its patients, many the poorest of the poor!

We’ll go through plans and budgets, prioritise, and apply for long- and short-term funding. Any ideas on who may contribute (and fast, if possible) are most welcome…
