Bruce delivering disability aid to Timor-Leste

HUNKERED down in his Stansbury workshop, Bruce Meehan, a former mechanic and electrical fitter, has been busy repurposing old equipment from local aged care facilities.

The equipment is now destined for Timor-Leste, formerly East Timor.

    Well done Bruce. I travelled home with you and met you at Tracey's on your first visit. I will forward this to my colleagues in Same TL. Good luck with it all.

    Regards Christine
