Text on poster
ECHO. Solidarity at the heart of Europe!
Timor - Street children of Covalima
Seeking to leave behind its violent past, Timor Leste is focusing on reconstruction, development and reconciliation with the help of the international community. Since 1999, the European Commission Humanitarian Aid department (ECHO) has provided emergency assistance to the most vulnerable victims of violence and in response to alarming levels of malnutrition.
In response to an outbreak of violence in 2006, ECHO funded projects which helped provide access to safe water and appropriate sanitation in the camps and transitional shelters, camp management, protection, health and child protection. It also supported the return and re-integration of the displaced after the violence abated.
