By the early 2000’s, Australian Jesuits found their mission of service to the poor expanding to accompany communities in other countries outside of India. Responding to the poverty and injustices resulting from conflict, Australian Jesuits travelled to Cambodia, East Timor (Timor-Leste), Burma (Myanmar) and Pakistan.
“As we rededicate ourselves to sharing God’s blessings with our brothers and sisters in India, we turn with them to our neighbours in East Asia.”
– Fr Stephen Curtain SJ
Through the continued support of Jesuit Mission family and friends, the Australian Jesuit missionaries in these countries served the communities in whatever way they needed – including providing health care, education and training, food production, support for landmine victims and other projects that promote the God-given dignity of all.
