Mr Bird said there was less civil unrest in Timor-Leste than in previous years.

�The people of Timor-Leste now want to now get on with their lives, continue working with us in helping them to improve their life and health with clean water,� he said.

�Bear in mind that some of these people are walking and carting water up to five kms just for a drink of water.�

For the past few years, Mr Bird has helped a team of charity workers install bores and water tanks to different villages.

He has also been involved in taking surplus computers from Australia and setting them up in Timor-Leste schools.
