Timor-Leste first country outside the Philippines to open a community party


- Advertisment -

Timor-Leste has become the very first country outside the Philippines to open a community pantry. Inspired by the community pantries set up in the Philippines to help those in need of food, the latest initiative by Timor-Leste residents proves that the bayanihan spirit transcends even beyond the Philippines. 

Noting the local economic effect of this month’s historic flooding in #Dili and the year-long COVID-19 lockdown in Timor-Leste, I took the opportunity to discuss with some Timorese friends and diplomats about the concept of “bayanihan” and particularly showed them photos of #communitypantry set-ups in (the Philippines) to which they gained much interest,” Vice Consul Laser Sumagaysay of the Philippine Embassy in Dili said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.
