Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 02 Hansard (Tuesday, 17 February 2015) . . Page.. 427 ..

In September last year I had the privilege of travelling to Timor-Leste to represent the former Chief Minister at the opening of the new national scouts activities centre in Dili, which was funded by the people of Canberra through the centenary of Canberra dollars for Dili appeal. During this visit I was able to see firsthand the difference that the donations made by the Canberra community have had on the lives of those living in Dili. These donations continue to make a difference through the Ryder-Cheshire society in helping to fund their care homes such as Klibur Domin.

In closing, I would like to inform the Assembly of my great pleasure in representing the Chief Minister at the launch of the book Klibur Domin: Sharing with Love. I would like to take the opportunity not only to congratulate Mr Newton on the launch of his book but also to congratulate Ryder-Cheshire Australia on setting up the Klibur Domin home and for the fantastic work they continue to provide not only at the home but abroad.

The mission of Ryder-Cheshire Australia and its foundation is to relieve suffering without discrimination, and there is no doubt that this fantastic foundation is doing just that. Everyone involved in this great project should be incredibly proud of the amazing work that they are achieving.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

The Assembly adjourned at 4.47 pm.
