Many houses, roads and bridges were destroyed or left covered in mud and uprooted trees. The human toll has been high, with more than 14,000 people forced to leave their homes destroyed by floods and landslides.
To help the affected population, the Timor Port teams have purchased basic necessities worth over 10,000 dollars. Rice, pasta, fresh eggs and hygiene products were collected and immediately distributed to the Civil Protection, which manages the centres housing the displaced people.
In addition to this emergency donation, construction equipment and nearly 100 employees working on the construction of the future container terminal have been mobilised to help clear and clean the streets of Dili. They will be at work in the capital for at least two weeks.
