Bairo Pite Clinic (BPC) or Bairo Pite Clinic Lanud is a non-government, not-for profit organisation located in the capital city of Dili that was established in 1999. Our goal is to provide free healthcare services to the people of Timor-Leste.
Our outpatient clinic sees on average 300 patients a day, and we have 4 inpatient departments, caring for up to 50 inpatients a day. Our maternity department helps deliver up to 110 babies a year and we also run 400 mobile clinics to serve the more remote areas in Timor.
Recently, due to budget changes within the Timor Leste government, the ministry of health, which has been the major funder for the clinic in recent times, has been unable to continue funding our clinic. As a result, we are facing the possibility of having to close our clinic down and this would leave thousands of patients without medical care.
We are hoping to raise enough money to keep out clinic open and continue our efforts to save lives and improve the health of the people if Timor Leste.
