Australian Salesian Mission Overseas Aid Fund (ASMOAF)

Emergency Flood Relief - Timor Leste


Salesian Missions Australia's mission is to support the vocational teaching of underprivileged young women, men, boys and girls in developing countries, in order that they find employment and become self-sufficient contributing members of their nation.

Salesian works include schools (academic, technical, agricultural), school luncheon programs, orphanages, workshops for unemployed youth, emergency programs and accommodation for street children, running dispensaries and providing assistance to the disadvantaged.

With a presence in most countries of the developing world, the Salesians are well placed to make responses that are quick, compassionate and generous to those in need during emergencies such as natural disasters, war or violence.

How will the funds be used?

The funds will be used to provide education, basic skills training, relief and development, community support and medical assistance in Timor Leste.

During the current Flood Victims Appeal the funds will be used to provide relief support to the many who seek refuge and assistance in the affected region with food, clothing, medical care, hygiene supplies and shelter.

Current Appeal - Flood Victims

We are raising emergency relief funds to assist victims seeking refuge from the devastating floods and landslides in the capital Dili which has claimed at least 14 lives, destroying roads, bridges and over 500 houses. The Salesians School in Comoro (Don Bosco Technical Centre) has opened its doors as a designated emergency relief centre, accommodating over 3,000 locals who are seeking refuge due to being displaced or losing homes.
