New Grant: $2,000 to family of guard at US Embassy Dili

Today we sent a grant of $2,000 to the family of a senior guard at the US Embassy Dili in Timor-Leste. The guard perished while rescuing his wife and young son from a flood at their residence. He had worked at the Embassy since 2005 and was a valued and trusted member of the LGF. Additionally, prior to his death, he had been nominated and selected to receive a Meritorious Honor Award for saving the life of a fellow guard.
