New Zealand Support for Klibur Domin
Embassy praises food initiative
To help reduce the reliance on both imported packaged goods, and foods from other parts of the country, Klibur Domin received a grant from the New Zealand Embassy in Dili to establish additional facilities to grow more food on-site. New Zealand’s Good Food, Good Life project funding has seen the KD veggie gardens greatly expanded, and animal pens set up for ducks, pigs and cattle. The project has a dual purpose, being not only to cut KD’s food costs, but also to educate both the local community and patients that pass through Klibur Domin.
Now that the gardens and animal pens are well established, the benefits have been greatly enhanced in their ability to provide a range of nutritious foods for residents during the recent mandatory confinement and strict lockdowns. The Embassy congratulated the team in a recent Facebook post with photos that are testament to the great work being done by staff at KD to successfully implement this project.
