On the 1st of June 2010 we've start the operation with our Air Hospital.
We've flown from Bergamo Airport - Italy till Costantine - Alegerie, then Tamarraset - Algerie and then following till Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso.
Twelve hours of flight, plus 4 hrs for the stop-overs in Costantine and Tamarraset, to refuel and rest for a while.
All the ferry was done in one day. Quite long but very interesting!!!

The doctors had started the operations the 3rd of June, with the first three patients. They have operate till the 17th of June

The mission was a success, with just few problems to be face. GOOD!!!

We want to thanks:
The Minister of Health of Burkina Faso

The doctors:
Giuseppe Di Meglio, Sara Pezzotta, Nonon Saa Pauline

And our volunteers:
Valfrido Paris (Aeronautical techician) Sergio Varani (Pilot), Marco Vignozzi, Linda Espling and specially Giuseppe Pesando - GEPPO - that remained till the last day.

Special thanks to all of you, for your economical and moral support!!!
