The beautiful green mountains surrounding this Kinship easily distract you from the heartbreaking reason for its creation. Riots erupted in East Timor in 1999, forcing thousands of people to flee to refugee camps in Atambua. Though many wanted to return to their homes after the violence subsided, numerous barriers and conditions prevented some from doing so.
The children who initially joined the Atambua Mercy Home were rescued from the hopelessness and despair of the refugee camp. Although those kids have since grown up and gone off to school or to new jobs, this Kinship continues to serve children and families throughout the community with different learning activities and services.
