Sisters visit to East Timor
A number of members of the Blue Mountains East Timor Sisters Group are visiting East Timor over July. The purpose of the trip is to re-connect with our women friends in East Timor, Beba Sequeira and Laura Abrantes as well as visit the projects we have established. We will also be reconnecting with Blue Mountains friends Fiona Christian and Anne McKenzie who have been travelling and working in East Timor since March this year.
"It is always wonderful to re-connect with our sisters in East Timor. The work they do is truly magnificent. Each time we visit there are minor celebrations that help to build the work and maintain the connection." said Mary Waterford on behalf of the group.
The group will also visit projects in Hato Builico and Bugoro.
