Timor Awakening event, elder giving scarf to RSL Veteran

Timor Awakening 13

Touring a previously war-torn country and seeing the progress of its people can bring inner peace for veterans. That is the premise behind Timor Awakening, a renewal and rehabilitation program.

Be embraced by whole communities, share stories with Timorese veterans, and see first-hand the positive impact of Australia’s involvement in the young country’s freedom in the 11-day tour.
“Timor is a peaceful country, with veterans and civilians that have suffered unimaginable atrocities, hardship, trauma and oppression; but they have healed and are moving forward. We want our veterans to experience the same healing and rehabilitation, to move forward and be part of the next chapters.” – Michael Stone, Timor Awakening Program Director.
