Samaritan Aviation

Samaritans Get Help

Member for Angoram, Salio Waipo presented a cheque of K200,000 to the Samaritan Aviation in Wewak recently to support its work.

The group first started operations in 2014 in the province and have been providing much needed health care and emergency medical evacuations for villages along the Sepik River.

Samaritan Aviation supported

Samaritan Aviation is a non-profit Christian organisation that has been serving the people of East Sepik Province through emergency evacuation flights, delivery of medical supplies and continued community outreach and health programs.

Recognising the important efforts of the organisation in providing primary health care, Digicel Foundation has continued its funding support to Samaritan Aviation, bringing the total funding to K300,000 to date.

K150,000 support for Samaritan Aviation

The Foundation’s K150,000 contribution allows the completion of the project, as well as have it shipped to PNG next month.  

This new floatplane will provide life-saving flights for people living along the Sepik River who are in desperate need of medical care to the main hospital in Wewak.

Whilst thanking Digicel PNG Foundation for the partnership, Samaritan Aviation President, Mark Palm, said the US based Christian organisation relies on US donors as well as the PNG Government for support.
