Emergency Flight for Mother and Child
We were in the middle of a flight to the community of Tacora with volunteer medical professionals from Mano a Mano Bolivia for a training course for doctors and nurses when we received an emergency call over the radio. A woman who had given birth 4 days earlier was having complications, and needed to get to a hospital. One of the volunteer doctors on the flight stressed the urgency of the situation to our pilot; one hour later the plane was en route to pick up Lilliana and her baby. They arrived at the maternal ward of the Cochabamaba hospital where they are doing well now, recuperating.
