Kol - Jiwaka Province

Kol Medivac

The young mother named Betty was assisted by villagers who constructed a stretcher out of bamboo and torn up flour bags and brought her to wait for the medevac.

Heli Solutions Pilot, Captain Boga and Operations Manager Linda Wii, who is also a First Aid officer flew to Kol and evacuated the young mother and her baby to the Kudjip Nazerene Hospital.

Wii said by the time the medevac team had arrived, the young mother was very weak but had been able to stay conscious by drinking coke to maintain her blood sugar level.
