Canguro O.N.L.U.S. Flights Aid collaborates with O.N.L.U.S. Paolo Chiono that manages the Nyeri Hospital north of Nairobi.
The doctors who currently work in the Nyeri Hospital also work for two medical centres in northern Kenya. These facilites are difficult to reach by road and are even isolated during the rain season.
The use of an aircraft would be the ideal solution.
Ideally, an aircraft (we are thinking of a Cessna 182) would allow the doctors to visit a greater number of patients with greater continuity due to the speed of displacement.
The aircraft could also transport patients in serious conditions that live in the northern area to the Nyeri hospital or to Nairobi, in less than two hours rather than in a couple of days on road as is the case now.
This way shorter and faster intervention times for treatment could be guaranteed for urgent cases.
NEW ACTIVITIES - MARCH 2007
Canguro o.n.l.u.s. Flights Aid is contacting institutions so as to operate in Africa in collaboration with and supporting the ONG's already operating in the territory.
To this end. we will do our best to support the Tumaini Children's Home orphanage, created and directed by Mrs.Joan Smith.
The centre lodges and cures children from 0 to 5 years of age affected by the AIDS disease.Thanks to the praiseworthy support of the Livingston crew, led and coordinated by Commander Roberto Marinelli, the centre will also be able to have a school that will see its first stone in the next few days, more precisely on March 15, 2007.
Our most heartfelt acknowledgments go to Livingstone Airlines that supported us in supplying us with tickets for our staff at a special price.
