Hope Comes to a Mother & Child

Life along the Sepik River is so much different than life in an American city. Imagine days and days of quiet—the loudest sound you hear is the crying of an infant, the laughter of kids playing, or the cawing and chirping of tropical birds on a hot day.

Then, the tranquility is disrupted because of a medical emergency. The coming of the rescuer is trumpeted by the sound of a propeller cutting the air and a roaring engine pushing a metal bird through the sky, disrupting the quiet while filling hearts with hope. Perhaps along the Sepik is the only place that an annoying sound becomes beautiful to the ear.

This was the case on Saturday, April 7th, when we got a call at 6 a.m. that a mother was in need of our help. A mother of seven, Jane had already delivered one baby but the second twin was transverse. One of our pilots, Luke Hamer, headed out to Korogo village with SA Staff Member Sarah Cooke to pick her up. Jane had already traveled hours to get to Korogo, the closest place from her village where the plane could land.

Luke and Sarah were able to get her safely back to Wewak and about an hour later, with the help of Dr. Angela Seginami at Boram Hospital, she was able to deliver the second twin, a baby girl!

funds still needed to containerize and ship our newest plane

Containerizing our second plane in 2015

$72,000 is still needed to containerize and ship the new plane and reassemble it in papua new guinea.

While allowing us to expand operations, another plane also ensures that even when one plane is down for maintenance, we can still save lives.
