  • Flight delivery of informational materials from World Health Organization in the local language regarding Covid 19

In November of 2013, the PNG Government partnered with Samaritan Aviation by gifting us a new ambulance to use to transport our patients from the airport to the hospital in Wewak. During the ceremony, Prime Minister Peter O’Neill presented the keys to S.A. President Mark Palm and expressed his gratitude for the services that we offered.

The gifted ambulance represented a growing relationship between Samaritan Aviation and the PNG Government as well as increased service to the people of the East Sepik. We are so grateful for all of the partnerships throughout the years that have allowed us to better serve those in remote areas!
