G’day! Welcome to Timor Leste! – the world’s newest nation
50% of its people live below the poverty line 45% of its people are aged under 14 years adult literacy is at 58% the under 5 years mortality rate is 56.5 per 1000 children (source: World Bank/UN Data)
Since 2010, our project volunteers, the Packing Crew, have loaded 34 large sea containers, each holding over 20 tonnes of humanitarian aid, for Timorese communities in need.
Our new Crowd Funding goal is to raise a total of $8,000 to buy & ship Sea Container 35. All your help is welcome. Our campaign starts Tuesday March 7 – asking people to buy a cubic metre of space in C35 for us to fill & send to Timor.
Our website is http://www.chuffed.org/project/cubed-space-for-timor
We are offering the following perks to donors:
YOU’LL have helped our local WASTEWISE: REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE REPURPOSE…mission for beds, clothes, desks, chairs, linen, shoes, computers, bookcases, bicycles, school uniforms & heaps else.
We’ll offer YOU ‘the sleep of the just’ that all our Packing Crew swear they enjoy in the knowledge that after 6 years of their efforts:
Bicycles are helping carers deliver ‘meals on wheels’ – & students access schools 2 hours walk away.
Sea containers are being repurposed into libraries & workshops.
Please help us to help more – raise project awareness & freight funds by sharing this campaign with friends.
If you can send this info to 100 people via social media or email we’ll get a great response.
With our thanks – the Friends of Timor Containers Packing Crew!
