Mano a Mano’s aviation program has 2 primary programs working with Bolivian communities that have minimal access to health care: emergency rescue of ill and injured individuals, transporting them to urban hospitals for life-saving treatment; and weekend clinics for which we transport volunteer health care professionals into remote areas to provide primary medical & dental care. In the first 3 months of 2022, we provided emergency flights for 61 people and transported health care professionals to provide 5 weekend health clinics. In total, we flew a total of 62 hours on 82 flights. We also transported 74,300 pounds of medical supplies, mobility equipment, food and supplies, and other needed items.
We will also make flights like this one to help support our overall aviation programs:
