2018SRFWeb150Three of our young Carmelites in Melbourne, Brs Agedo Bento, Martinho Da Cruz Lemos and Avelino Dos Santos, recently joined other members of the East Timorese community to raise funds for the Bairo Pite medical clinic in Dili. The clinic, founded in 1999, had been treating up to 300 patients a day before the funding crisis hit earlier this month. The crisis has caused the clinic to cancel its malnutrition. maternal care and inpatient services.

Agedo, Martinho and Avelino put on a program of Timorese music and songs as part of the fundraising effort. More photos below.
