Frank lead a team of four people from Mt Gambier to a facility called Klibur Domin in Tibar, about 15km outside of Dili in Timor Leste. The facility runs a TB testing and rehab facility, as well as renal dialysis for Timorese people, often from remote villages. It also has living facilities for physically disabled children (Cerebral Palsy, spinal and leg injuries that make rehab in their own villages almost impossible) as well as several patients with mental health issues.

The team's mission was to construct an additional medical clinic building and they also carried out other general maintenance at Klibur Domin. Frank also spent time at the school opposite Klibur Domin helping kids with English lessons.
