Purpose: to develop a Mother Support Group in Viqueque. The Geelong Friends of Viqueque has had a close relationship with the people of the district of Viqueque, (located approximately 195 kms south east of Dili) for over ten years.
Maternal mortality rates in East Timor are one of the highest in the world, with high infant mortality rates of 37 per 1,000 live births, and 55 per 1,000 for children aged under five. The main goals for the Mother Support Groups are to provide information on pre-natal and post-natal care as well as to support mothers once they return to their community following birth.
