COMMUNITY MULTIPURPOSE BUILDING (RACA VILLAGE)

The people of Raca village currently do not have a building at which the community can meet. Multipurpose community buildings are used for a variety of occasions in Timor-Leste, including elections, public announcements and gatherings, training and education. Once completed, the community will use it for development planning for their village. ​

Total cost: $5,000 USD​

SPECS FOR LOSPALOS

In 2019, the Friends of Lospalos travelled to Timor-Leste with $40,000 worth of donated optometry equipment and spectacles. The team tested more than 400 Timorese, dispensing spectacles and offering diagnoses for eye health issues. Now, we are planning our next SPECS project and need your help.

The aims of the project are to:

1) improve eye health for the community,

2) train local hospital staff in optometry, and

3) to provide the community with working optometry equipment.

What’s needed:

Donations
Spectacles (especially children’s frames)
Volunteer optometrists
