15 years supporting people in Timor-Leste

In 2017 we continued supporting people through the Friendship Groups and in 2018 we'll continue supporting people through the volunteer run Sidara Clinic in Hera.

In 2016 Life, Love and Health donated $8500 to the group 'Friends of Luro' to be used for the education of three local Luro boys to attend senior secondary school at Fatumaca.

The boys; Mateus Dacosta, Oldegar Soares and Ricsonjo Branco did well in the 2017 school year and are looking forward to 2018.

Life, Love and Health also teamed up with the 'Friends of Same' to continue supporting the Timor-Leste NGO Fuan Nubilan. We donated $4000 to build a new dormitory for the visually impaired children the NGO supports.

LL&H is partnered with AFAP to improve peoples’ lives in Timor-Leste

Life, Love and Health (LL&H) is a volunteer based, Australian registered charity formed in 2002 to complete community development projects in Timor-Leste. Our grassroots projects have assisted the Timor-Leste people to address their fundamental needs and aspirations as they have moved forward through difficult challenges to their independent future.

Together with the local Timorese communities and NGOs, we have achieved extraordinary things and after 11 years of operation, we are taking a break from fundraising and direct project management. As of 30 June 2012, LL&H will no longer be actively fundraising to directly conduct projects in Timor-Leste but will make effective use of any donations received. We will continue to help (in a fully volunteer capacity) our community development partners in Timor-Leste. We will continue to maintain this website as we are giving daily advice and support to people who either need assistance or want to lend a hand in Timor-Leste. Please get in touch. If we can assist, we will.
