February 2020: Guyana Air Ambulance

Remote Area Medical ­– RAM® is proud of its Guyana Air Ambulance Program. This important mission uses aircraft to connect patients who are indigenous to the remote villages in the region with healthcare providers they would otherwise have no way of accessing. This much-needed program is the closest thing to RAM Founder Stan Brock’s (1936-2018) initial vision for the organization. From 1952 to 1968, he spent time in Guyana managing a 4,000 square mile cattle ranch. He also worked as a pioneer bush pilot providing medical supplies to the region and helped create numerous air strips in support of that mission.

In 2019, the program provided $264,290 in value of care while logging nearly 150 hours of flight time. If the program is going to be able to match those service numbers in 2020 it will need your help. The plane seen above is currently grounded and in need of repairs. Your donations will help RAM continue Mr. Brock’s legacy and keep the organization close to its original roots.
