Having suffered recent civil unrest, Timor-Leste remains fragile and in need of long term developmental support. Public services are weak and economic capacity is low, particularly in isolated regions including the Oecussi enclave, Suai, Los Palos, Viqueque and Atauro Island. Communicable diseases like malaria, diarrhoea and respiratory infections are highly prevalent and health risks are exacerbated by contaminated water and inadequate sanitation.

Amidst these challenges, many lives have been saved and communities assisted owing to the invaluable work of our aviation partner which provides air transport services to remote regions of Timor-Leste. They facilitate development and emergency relief through the delivery of resources and personnel where ground travel is not viable due to compromised safety, reliability or speed. Having the option of air travel enables more regular access to a greater sphere of influence. Some key services involved in this project include:

  • Medevacs/ medical supply deliveries
  • NGO transport needs for staff and equipment
  • Government staff travel
  • Aerial searches
  • Natural Disaster response
  • Local training

Key Areas of Expenditure:

  • Fuel
  • Staff training and wages
  • Aircraft maintenance
  • Resource provision
