East Timor

East Timor (also known as Timor-Leste) is one of the poorest countries in the Asia-Pacific region. It became an independent nation in May 2002 following several years of conflict and turmoil, which brought widespread destruction to communities.

Oxfam is supporting this young nation to become more stable by working closely with the government, partner organisations and communities to improve livelihoods, provide safe water and sanitation, sustainable energy and health and nutrition.
