To our arch-peace members and friends: Jorge Teme, former Timor Leste Ambassador to Australia, sent me [Bernie Milane] an email some weeks ago, providing me with site location details for Solar Power Units.
- TAIBOCO VILLAGE (Maquelab Centre - Community Council and Youth Organisation) Pop. 3000. About 45 mins. by road from Oecussi Township.
- BOBOCASE VILLAGE (Bimelo Community Centre - Community Council, Youth and Womens Groups) Pop. 2000. About 25 mins. by car from Oecussi.
- NIPANI VILLAGE (Sacato Community Centre) Pop. 2,100. About 20 mins. by road from Oecussi Township. Local NGO, Community Council, Touth and Womens Groups.
He also listed some other basic needs for the local village communities, however the Solar Power Units are considered a prioriy. I have visited the locations and can verify the urgent need for support.
As at today, I have received $950AUS donations towards the cost of purchasing and installation for the 3 Units. To complete the Project, Bill Bennett and his colleagues need $3000AUS. As you can see, we have a little way to go, to meet the total cost. If you can, I need your help for us to fund this priority project.
>> Photos coming soon...
That's all for now and please remember, I am confident that, with your help, we can fund the 3-Solar Powered Electricity Units for Oecussi.
