In January 2018, 12 JCU Allied Health students go to Dili, Timor Leste to work for four weeks alongside local healthcare workers at a rehabilitation centre called ‘CNR’.
CNR provides rehabilitation services, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology, prosthetics and orthotics and wheelchair prescription, to local and surrounding communities.
CNR have provided the incoming team with a ‘wish-list’ of small items including toys, crutches, sports tape, bandaging and stethoscopes, in the hope that the team may be able to purchase and bring some of these supplies with them in January. This page has been set up to fundraise for these items to establish a continued relationship with the local team at CNR.
