The mission of the Ryder-Cheshire Foundation is the relief of suffering among
people who are sick, disabled or destitute, without regard to age, race or
religion. Since 2000, the Ryder-Cheshire Foundations of Australia have
supported a low dependency health-care facility in Timor-Leste (formally East
Timor). Patients awaiting or recovering from surgery, suffering from TB or
malnutrition, and those requiring physiotherapy are referred by Hospital

outreach programs assist children with disabilities, provide diagnosis and
treatment for those suffering from TB and offer health and hygiene training.
