Team to Atambua, Nusa Tenggara Timor

Team to Atambua, Nusa Tenggara Timor The beginning of this year was another exciting moment and opportunity to visit Atambua, Nusa Tenggara Timor and touch the lives of children on the border of West Timor. Our team left Jakarta to distribute goods sponsored by friends in Jakarta. Team to Atambua, Nusa Tenggara Timor Francis and Esther (Family Care Indonesia volunteers) visited 7 schools in the mountains outside Atambua and distributed hundreds of shoes, backpacks, sarongs, dollies and a variety of toys! We would like to thank every one of our friends who contributed for this event.

This is a regular event of Family Care Indonesia where we collect donated items to help in this area and try to visit there as often as we can. These widows have trouble making enough to live on and so this supplementary support means a lot to them.
