TCRP’s journey began in August 2009 with the Tour de Timor, Timor-Leste’s inaugural 5-day, 450-kilometre mountain bike race across nine of the nation’s 13 districts.
Using the race as a platform, and harnessing the power of social networking and media, TCRP successfully raised more than SGD$44,500 for HIAM-Health.
Malnutrition Centre for Children
TCRP’s 2009 initiative also piqued the interest of the media. The endeavor generated over 10 news features across various print, radio and television platforms, significantly helping the team’s efforts to raise awareness about both HIAM Health and Timor-Leste.
The initiative saw the successful launch of HIAM Health, Timor-Leste’s first Malnutrition Rehabilitation Centre for Children.
The life-changing experience saw TCRP return to Timor in 2010 to continue their support of HIAM Health.
