Dear AMREF Flying Doctors,
I would like to thank you very much for the fantastic care after my unfortunate and rather dramatic fall from the horse in Sosian on Sunday. Within three hours of my fall AMREF Flying Doctors were ready to airlift me from Sosian to the Nairobi hospital. The calmness and efficiency with which everything was arranged to get me the best possible medical care, and my family safely in a hotel, has meant that I have not needed to have surgery. At this stage my arm / shoulder has been immobilized in a sling. The break is clean and hopefully will re-knit over the next 6 to 8 weeks. I shall have an x ray next week to assess the progress.
Please can you forward my thanks to the pilot and the Doctor. They were both extremely professional and caring not only about me but also about my family. In particular please let the doctor know that the surgeon commented that the excellent medical management and immobilization of my arm by AMREF Flying Doctors was the reason that the fracture remained clean and that I did not need surgery.
Thank you for offering such a first class service.

”Good Morning Amref Flying Doctors,
My name is Henry Mutunga, Inspector Administration Police Service, Makueni County.  Would like to pass my gratitude to you with regard to your Services. It was on 12 January 2016, when i visited by Boss Mr. Martin Ouna (Makueni County Commander) at Tanaka Nursing Home in Busia Town, were he underwent a Major Stomach Operation. On arriving Busia i realized that the facility didn’t have ICU equipment’s to sustain him as confirmed by the operating Surgeon and therefore immediate evacuation was required to a better facility to save his life. As per the patient’s situation, only Air Evacuation was suitable. We conducted the Amref Flying Doctor’s through +254722314239, explained the situation and they responded accordingly. The patient was quickly taken to Kisumu Airport from Busia by an Ambulance, for a flight to Nairobi. We met the Amref Flying Doctor’s exactly 2:10 pm as they had promised.
Your Doctor’s received the Patient quickly and i watched them perform some Miracles and i would like to commend them Amref Flying Doctor’s by saying that;
i) Good doctors understand responsibility better than privilege and practice accountability better than business. That’s Amref.
ii) More than a good doctor, I value the fact that you were a good listener. More than being just professionals, I value the fact that your staff’s attitude was exceptional. Thank You Amref.
iii) The very thought of hospitalization is scary and traumatizing. But caring doctors like you make it friendly and pleasing. 
iv) Medicines can cure, but a good doctor’s inspirational words can give the strength to fight from within. Thanks for doing just that. 
v) If every doctor strives to be as caring and generous as Amref, the world would be filled with smiles and laughter instead of pain and sorrow. 

I would like also to confirm that Mr Martin Ouna is doing and still at Nairobi West Hospital. God Bless Your Staff.”

“I used to work for AMREF and actually my new born baby boy developed a complication at Lodwar County and Refererral Hospital in 2014. AMREF Flying doctors came to my rescue and evacuated the baby to KNH who later passed on due to the initial handling at LCRH but on behalf of my family KUDOS to AMREF Flying Doctors initiative.”

“Truly, I liked your evacuation services as they were timely. I was in the heart of kibera in my normal duties when I started experiencing some headache, I thought it was a normal headache and with pain killers all would be well but it was not the case, it persisted for like two hours. 
My colleagues contacted AMREF Flying Doctors and immediately they came to my rescue. I was rushed to Mater hospital where I was admitted and discharged after three days; currently I am back to normalcy courtesy of AMREF Flying Doctors. How I wish everyone could understand the importance and goodness of having a Maisha Cover. I thank AMREF Flying Doctors for their prompt evacuation service.”

“There are no words to describe the kind of joy and relief Amref Flying Doctors bring to the lives of many citizens
in East Africa and more so the people of Northern Arid lands in Kenya. The timely interventions of this noble team
in saving life is unique and something worth mentioning in every corridor of humanity. The latest and the most impressive support
this team gave to the people of Mandera was, when they flew and come to Mandera after a formal request by the Medical Superintendent to
assist in the referral of a two weeks old child with omphalocele-type of abdominal wall defect in which the intestines, liver, 
and occasionally other organs remain outside of the abdomen in a sac because of a defect in the development of the muscles of the 
abdominal wall (exomphalos).
It was worrying for both me and the Medical superintendent on how to facilitate referral for this baby from a humble background whose parents were 
honestly desperate and helpless. But with the presence and the promising support from Amref Flying Doctors-Life could be different.
Long life Amref Flying Doctors Service – a Unique service of its own! The entire Kenyan Communities should support the cause for this wonderful team. We appreciate you – AMREF”
