Trip to Timor Island

Family Care Indonesia member Angel along with a dear Korean friend Euna visited Timor Island where they joined Nicolas at two orphanages outside Kupang bringing needed supplies of clothing, shoes, school books, bags and supplies, toys and character building books for the children. In addition to many needed supplies at the Sonaf Manekat orphanage they also helped with the paying of school fees directly to the schools where the orphans study.

Angel joined by Euna then held an educational seminar for teachers from thirty schools. The seminar’s theme was “Character Building” in the student’s lives. The seminar was a lively affair with talks, workshops and inspirational programs. Each teacher was left with a sponsored set of 20 books, teacher’s instructional book and a CD of songs to use with the children.

After programs in Kupang Family Care Indonesia volunteers traveled 7 hours across Timor to Atambua to the village school established by Family Care Indonesia members in that area. There they held a seminar for local teachers as well as those from surrounding villages introducing a new “Character Building” course. Angel also set up another new donated computer and library of reading books for the children. Security bars were installed on the windows of one of the buildings to keep the new books and equipment safe.

The last day at the school was spent with the children to encourage and inspire them as well as give them stationary and schooling needs.
