This Week's Med Evac

After the passenger briefing and prayer, we loaded up in our rented Cessna 206, bound to Bongolo Hospital.  The gentleman in the middle of this picture has cancer.  He was turned away from a well-known hospital in the capital city of Libreville.  He is too weak for travel by road.  Without our aviation program and Bongolo accepting to see him, he would have no other options.

The two gentlemen are friends of the patient.  They stayed with us as we loaded up and departed.

On the very same flight, were two new team members at Bongolo- Jen and Zack O.  They are both general surgeons that have come under the Samaritan's Purse program.
