We have a ‘friendship city’ relationship with the Liquiçá District in East Timor dating back to 2003.
East Timor is one of the poorest countries in the world - more than two in five people live on less than 55 cents per day, with only 58 per cent of people having access to clean water.
Since 2003, we have provided support to the Liquiçá District through governance activity, project support and local community engagement and fundraising.
We work closely with the Friends of Liquiçá, a community group first established in 2003.
We meet to discuss potential projects to raise funds and awareness for the people of the Liquiçá District and to develop recommendations on furthering the friendship arrangement we have with the region.
