FIELD NOTES

In June 2010, Team TCRP returned to Timor-Leste to participate in the inaugural Dili ‘City of Peace’ Marathon, running 42 kilometers up mountains, through native villages and along pristine coastlines of the country once ravaged by civil war.

This time a group of 22 Catalysts joined them on their adventure and to continue their support of HIAM Health, a Dili-based malnutrition rehabilitation centre for children.

Together they delivered a SGD$28,000 Playpoint playground and more than SGD$9,500 for the children of HIAM Health.

As a show of support for TCRP and HIAM Health’s combined efforts, Timor President, Dr Jose Ramos Horta officiated the unveiling of the playground at the centre.

With awareness growing about HIAM Health’s life-changing work and dedication, HIAM was awarded a Certificate of Recognition in the area of Human Rights on Dec. 9, 2010. The annual award was presented by the Timorese Government and telecast throughout the nation.
