1st Flight- Game Changers


As we pulled up, we had a welcome from over 30 very excited supporters from the local community and hospital supporters.

It was really true! After an hour and fifty minutes, we had made the voyage from Libreville to Bongolo Hospital! We were very excited!

Did I mention that those waiting were excited!?!

For those of you that follow this blog, you'll remember an entry called "Game Changing Flights" regarding the difference that a couple other pilots were making. I ended the entry saying that we hope that the aircraft will come soon and we, ourselves, can be part of making similar impact. Well, read this from Dr. Wendy H., ophthalmologist at Bongolo Hospital:
"I just wanted to say thank you again for bringing our eye equipment last week! We used it right away- on Thursday we did a laser treatment on a patient with glaucoma, a disease where the elevated interocular pressure slowly causes blindness. This laser treatment will help to bring down the eye pressure and preserve the patient's vision. Without Air Calvary, it would have been tough to get the laser without too much jarring, but everything worked just right on Thursday after you brought it down with such conscientiousness."
