One Week until our 2015 4X4 Desert Trek

IMG_2902

How exciting is the week before you embark on an adventure?

Everyone is excited for you! Your family, your friends, you neighbour, the postman….. This week is full of catch ups and dinners. It’s great to catch up with family & mates who will constantly fire questions about your “big” trip and this make you get even more excited (if that is even possible).

This week is also full of packing, un-packing, packing, un-packing, re-packing and shuffling. How can we fit so much in such a small space? It is also filled with to-ing and fro-ing, rushing around and finalising last minute details.

It is all part of the adventure and even though we are counting down, we are not wishing this part away……..

A Flying Doctor

Print

Some of the doctors in Australia have wings. They can fly and I mean really fly.

In planes…… 

You didn’t think I actually meant they could flap their own wings did you?

The Royal Flying Doctor Service in Australia was started by Reverend John  Flynn back in 1928. Initially, named the Australian Inland Mission Aerial Medical Service they were based in Clonclurry, QLD with one pilot and one doctor. He never would have thought all these years later Australia would be serviced nation-wide by a fleet of over 60 planes carrying doctors and nurses to remote, rural and regional Australia.

Last year 90,000 patients were consulted and more than 5000 remote clinics were operated by the RFDS.

Without donations this would not be possible so please help keep our doctors flying by DONATING NOW.

Your donation helps with fitting out RFDS aircraft, vital medical equipment, funding essential health services and emergency medical services.
