Five days in East Timor visiting orphanages changed the lives of five young men from Youth Off The Streets. The children in these orphanages run by the Salesian order of the Catholic church are products of the Indonesian invasion, which began in 1975 and continued until 1999. Massive destruction occurred throughout the country. Buildings at the orphanage in Dili were bombed out, as the priests were protecting 10,000 refugees who in some way had fought against the Indonesian militia. No lives were lost as all of the people had escaped to the forest. This article briefly describes the orphanages that the men visited.
