Join our Virtual Group for a $200 fee, and commit to raising $1,000 from a privately organised fundraiser.
Participants will connect virtually to our friends in Timor-Leste via regular online meetings including the nursing students whom your funds will support. We will follow and support their journey as their training and work impacts disadvantaged communities.
Across the globe, nations are still struggling to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s affected us all in different and unpredictable ways. Research shows the Timorese are up to four times more at risk from COVID-19 than Australians!
Already facing a worrying new COVID-19 outbreak, Timor-Leste has also recently been hit by devastating flooding and landslides, claiming lives, destroying infrastructure and leaving towns underwater.
The Timorese people need our help more now than ever!
We may not be able to travel to Timor-Leste again this year, but we can still be people of justice and reach out.
We are shipping a container of much-needed items to Timor-Leste in early May. We are calling on our community to support with raising money for the Good Crocodile Foundation (FLD).
Funds raised will go towards:
• Buying essential health supplies to be sent in a shipping container in May.
• Contribute to the education of two nurses (Mateus “Martins” and Mauricio - pictured) who are undertaking a university course in Baucau.
Martins and Mauricio will then contribute to the maternity and general health programs that Nazareth Outreach Work has supported over many years.
Nazareth Outreach Work is all about reaching out to others who are not as fortunate as we are and offering a helping hand to those who need it.
It doesn't cost a lot to make our projects possible. With your help, we have been able to make a safe birthing clinic facility, access to medical attention, clean drinking water, toilets, education resources, and liveable homes a reality for people in Timor-Leste.
There are many ways individuals and businesses can meaningfully contribute to our Outreach work. Act NOW - make a donation through RAWCS.
Since 2012, more than one hundred Nazareth Community members (graduates, staff, families and others) in nine groups have travelled on outreach trips to Timor-Leste.
Unfortunately in 2020, COVID-19 travel restrictions halted our plans.
Our partnership with key partners, Rotary International and the Good Crocodile Foundation continues to grow and we build upon the important work that past groups have undertaken in the Triloka Village.
Resources necessary to undertake our project work will continue to be collected and with the generous support of Pacific Asia Express (PAE), who have provided the container and covered associate shipping costs, we plan to send the container when possible. Resources in the container will include tables, chairs, medical equipment, family packs, books, blankets, sporting equipment, pencil cases, as well as playground parts and tools.
When we can again travel, the group plans to construct and install a third community playground, with as much of the equipment as possible purchased from local suppliers in Triloka.
We thank our Community for once again responding with generosity to our various calls to support fundraising and resource collecting initiatives.

Since 2012, the Nazareth Community have been working in partnership with West Torrens Rotary Club and The Good Crocodile Foundation in Timor-Leste. Without the generous support of our community, Rotary, Pacific Asia Express and our other partners and supporters our work wouldn't be possible. These sponsors contribute to our Outreach work through cash donations and/or products, equipment and resources.
Thank you also to all Nazareth families and those in our Community who have supported and continue to support our projects in Timor-Leste.
