Rotary Projects Timor-Leste East (RPTLE). On 7th July 2021, a 20” sea container out fitted with SkyHydrant water filter and two internal rectangle water tanks.

It has taken us a while dealing with project management from afar, travel restrictions, Covid-19 lock downs both in Australia and Timor- Leste and the devastating floods in Dili, but we are getting there. Credit must go to Brother Adriano and the students of The Don Bosco Technical Training Centre in Comoro, Dili, for completing our very first water container, now supplying approximately 10,000 litres of clean filtered potable water, daily to the students and the community of Don Bosco Comoro complex of approximately 1,000 people. Rotary Projects Timor-Leste East (RPTLE) could not have completed this major task without the support from Rotary Clubs in NSW, Victoria, and Western Australia.

Credit must also go to Duncan Hedditch from the Rotary Club of Phillip Island and San Remo in Victoria, who not only designed the unit, but had the construction drawings prepared. This allowed the  students of The Don Bosco Technical Training Centre in Comoro Dili Timor-Leste to follow the plans during the construction phase.

Again, I say, “Thank you all”, on behalf of the Timorese People.
