A Very Special MILK Event: 5th August 2016

Geelong Friends of Viqueque – Alola Foundation fundraising dinner

Join us for a two course dinner as we raise funds to develop a Mother Support Group in Viqueque. Dr Kirsty Sword Gusmao AO, former First Lady of Timor-Leste and founder and chair of the Alola Foundation will be addressing the audience. Following this, a Q & A will be held with a panel also including: Ms Maria Imaculada Guterres, Manager of Maternal and Child Health Programs (MCH) at Fundasaun Alola of Dili; Ms Deb Singleton, Science Coordinator at Christian College Geelong who has visited Viqueque many times in her role as a teacher, and knows Viqueque and Timor-Leste well.

All proceeds will be given to Alola Australia, to pass on to its partner organisation in Timor-Leste: www.alolafoundation.org

The City of Greater Geelong Friends of Viqueque Committee has a close relationship with the people of Viqueque, located 195 kilometres south east of Dili, Timor-Leste.

In Timor-Leste, many women lose their lives during childbirth due to limited resources. Approximately one in twenty children in Timor-Leste do not live to the age of five. Alola’s Maternal and Child Health Program seeks to improve the safety well-being of mothers and babies.
