Kirsty Sword Gusmao - Working to Promote Health & Well-being in East Timor
We are inviting guests to gather at 7pm in the Carrington Ballroom and have an opportunity to chat and meet Kirsty Sword-Gusmao. In recognition of the important role played by Blue Mountains City Council in the establishment of the Blue Mountains Friendship Committee, we are inviting Mayor Jim Angel to open the Public Forum at 7.30pm. Kirsty Sword Gusmao will speak and answer questions from the audience. There may also be an opportunity after the formal event for guests to meet Kirsty Sword Gusmao. We are asking guests to make a small contribution towards the cost of hosting this event ($10 for waged and $5 concession).
The Blue Mountains East Timor Sisters Project has been raising funds to support projects for women and children in East Timor since 2004. We have developed a range of partnerships in East Timor and the Blue Mountains that assist with the implementation of important projects that promote health, well-being, access to education, community development, etc.
All of our funds come directly from fund-raising activities and most of these activities take place in the Blue Mountains. Whilst the main purpose of this event is awareness raising , we are hoping to raise some funds on the evening to support the work of the Alola Foundation.
All members of the community are invited to attend. Should you wish to speak to a Sister about this event or other BMETS activities, please feel free to call Suzie on 4784 1718 (h) or 4782 5133 (w).
