Dili, 14 May 2021 – The European Union is allocating €1 million (over USD 1.2 million) in humanitarian aid funding to respond to the rapid increase in coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in Timor-Leste in recent months. The aid will focus on increasing the country’s response capacity in the most affected areas, including the capital Dili where most cases have been registered so far.
"During my first interview for a job, the boss of the company asked me if I had the intention to have kids. I was young and single, and my reply was: ‘Not for the moment, but yes. I hope it will happen’. I got offended at first. Almost humiliated. But then I thought that it was him humiliating himself with that question. By the way, I got the job and I had two kids a few years later."
