Helping their fellow countrymen
Laurenco Ribeiro is a doctor and has made it his business to help his fellow countrymen. For this reason, he regularly joins Mercy Air on trips to the remote villages. With this mode of air transport, he is able to oversee 14 villages in the South of Mozambique.

“In former times we had to journey for days in a 4X4”, says Dr. Laurenco Ribeiro (52). “After those long and very exhausting journeys we were so tired and shaken, that we couldn't consider treating the patients right away. We were losing precious time of caring”, says the local doctor. He is excited about the air transport of Mercy Air. “Thanks to the help from the air we can get the work of one week done in just one day. We are able to reach a lot more of my countrymen to provide medical treatment. My deepest gratitude is extended to all who help in this valuable work!”

Statement

«For me, over and over again it is amazing how fast we can access regions with the aid of the Mercy Air helicopter – regions which can almost only be reached by air. This way we can reach people who otherwise would not receive any help fast, unbureaucratically and with a lasting effect.»
