THE SALESIANS MISSIONS OFFICE in Melbourne has launched an appeal to assist Salesian schools and orphanages in East Timor.

Appeal co-ordinator, Br Michael Lynch, says that with the severe economic downturn in Indonesia and the increasingly critical situation in East Timor, the Salesians are urgently in need of funds to keep their schools open and to assist the poor families.

While Bishop Carlos Belo is the best known Salesian in East Timor, there are another 53 Salesian priests and brothers on the island running schools, orphanages, parishes and youth centres.

Br Michael Lopes of the Don Bosco Technical School, Fatumaca, says that their needs are great and any support would be most welcome. Just $25.00 per month would cover the education of one student, however, very few families are able to make any contribution at all. He adds that they would appreciate help with a special project to irrigate and transform abandoned land into rice fields.

Donations can be sent to:

"Salesian East Timor Appeal", Salesians Mission Office, PO Box 80, Oakleigh Vic 3166 Australia

Donations are tax deductible and will be forwarded immediately.
