Description In 1999 as we watched the images of devastation in East Timor, an 86 year old haberdasher from Yarrawonga remembered the debt Australia owed to Timor from World War II, the outrage of the 1975 invasion, the murder of the "Balibo 5" and the injustices that have been perpetuated against the Balinese for decades. Determined to give something back, she surprises family and friends by leaving Australia for the first time to set up a woman's sewing co-operative in East Timor.
