During the challenges of 2020, Alola Offices in Dili and Baucau were closed and staff worked from home. Core programs, such as Infant and New Mother Care, Early Childhood Education, Women’s Cancer Support, and Economic Empowerment, were forced to stop. The Alola CEO and Management Team worked urgently to develop new plans to respond to the COVID challenge.
Alola’s immediate action and commitment to preventing the spread of COVID-19 in Timor-Leste is a tribute to excellent leadership. The 2020 global COVID-19 crisis has reaffirmed Alola’s deep commitment to working for change for the peoples of Timor-Leste.
