Below is an alphabetical list of organisations and individuals who have helped Bairo Pite Clinic provide assistance to the ill and needy of East Timor.

AFAP (Australian Foundation for Peoples of Asia and the Pacific)

The objective of the medical supplies and services (MSS) Program from AFAP is to provide hospital equipment and medical supplies to hospitals and health centres in developing nations. AFAP collects superseded and surplus equipment which are no longer required by NSW nursing homes, private and public hospitals. AFAP then refurbishes them in their warehouse and ships them to hospitals and clinics in developing nations. The recycling of superseded equipment also helps the environment in Australia as it reduces demand in landfills in NSW.

Dr Mark Moore
The Adelaide-based plastic surgeon assists in providing medication for treatment of BPC patients. Dr Moore works in conjunction with the Overseas Specialist Surgical Association of Australia. OSSAA is a non-profit, non-political, humanitarian organisation specifically aiming to provide a specialist surgical programme and develop public health initiatives in Eastern Indonesia, East Timor and Papua where access to any surgical care is minimal and surgeons are few. OSSAA was initiated by clinical team members who had travelled to West and East Timor, Flores and Papua (Mimika/Timika) to provide specialist reconstructive surgical services to disadvantaged people, especially children and young adults in the region where the service is not available and cannot be afforded.
