“On 6th February 2015 AMREF Flying Doctors received a call to evacuate a 70 year old patient from Dar es Salaam to Nairobi. Patient sustained a subdural hematoma (collection of blood outside the brain cavity-between the skull and brain) secondary to a fall while alighting from a vehicle. Normally if not attended to in good time, can have very adverse effects on a patient “Please convey our sincere thanks to the whole team who mobilized Janet's rescue from Dar on Saturday. You have done a great job for Mum who is making great progress after instant surgery”

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.

“2 days after evacuation while still admitted at the Agha khan hospital, AMREF called me to inquire on my progress. This means that the evacuation cover is more than just evacuation. At AMREF Flying Doctors, there is love for humanity. Super customer care, super air crew, and super state of the art ground and air ambulance with a super driver and pilots.
The air evacuation team was prompt. They were in Kitui airstrip 35 minutes after making that distress call. I was in very bad pain. The crew was so caring, polite and professional. A ground ambulance was ready to receive me at Wilson and in a few minutes, I was handed over to Aga Khan medical staff.
This is a cover everyone should have and I am making fast arrangements to pay for my kids and parents. Any medical emergency should be directed to AMREF Flying Doctors.
Thank you AMREF Flying Doctors and God Bless AMREF and all AMREF staff.”

"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 Flying Doctors"

"Please receive my sincere thanks for arranging and evacuating me from Seronera airstrip, Serengeti to The Nairobi Hospital on 2 May 2012.
It was done in a very professional way and I was overwhelmed with kindness from all the personnel involved in the process. I experienced this from the moment I entered the aircraft, from the pilot, doctor and other staff right through until after admission in the hospital. I further appreciate the visit in the hospital a few days after my admission to check if I am fine and recovering well.  As a stranger and a foreigner. I really appreciated this gesture."
