In Australia, the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) is a non for profit organisation which sends doctors and nurses by plane to remote areas to provide emergency services and medical relief to the injured and sick. Homart Pharmaceuticals has been supporting and sponsoring the RFDS for many years to improve the health and condition of people living in and travelling to remote areas, where they may not have such good access to healthcare services. Homart makes a great effort to support the RFDS spirit of caring for health and does its best to support the Australian health industry.
The RFDS has over 85 years of history and saves numerous lives. The RFDS was established by Priest Rev John FLYNN in May 15th, 1928. Now, there are over 60 airplanes and over 10 supply bases, with thousands or doctors, nurses, pilots and volunteers within the organisation. 365 days a year and 24 hours a day, RFDS provides not only emergency and medical services, but also medical consulting service for residents who live in remote areas, through radio and phone. They fly more than 70 thousand kilometres every day. Every year, they rescue and assist with 4500 emergency cases, provide first aid services and deliver thousands of emergency patients to hospitals from remote areas. Some of their stories include saving a couple from a car accident in the quiet western desert, and hovering a plane over 10 thousands meters high in the sky, for an emergency baby delivery. Their achievements are countless and numerous.
The RFDS needs over $10 million Australian dollars every year to continue its operations. They need sponsorship and support from the society. The RFDS Outback Car Trek is a non for profit charity with 24 years of history. It volunteers in the donation for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Team members in the RFDS Outback Car Trek are from Australia, New Zealand, U.S, India, China, Hong Kong, Middle East, U.K and other countries in Europe. Over its 24 years, the Outback Car Trek has collected up to AUD $20 million for the RFDS. In 2012, they successfully collected AUD $1.6 million. These donations are used for flight maintenance, expanding the medical emergency coverage area and enhancing emergency services in remote areas.
