Welcome to the website: Water for East Timor
Water East Timor (WET) is a group of people predominately from South West Victoria, with expertise and an interest in waterand sanitation system installation and management, health promotion and education.
Small teams of local tradesmen with support from Warrnambool East Rotary Club and the local community have travelled to Timor Leste over the past eight years to teach East Timorese communities the necessary skills to construct, implement and maintain water systems in rural areas.
Individuals and service groups work in partnership to donate money, time and expertise to fund the water systems.
East Timor is one of Australia's nearest neighbours and amongst the poorest nations in the world, yet problems still remain in health care, nutrition and sanitation. Many of the serious illnesses that confront the people of East Timor are due to unsafe or inadequate supplies of running water
