How your money helps

As a not-for-profit aeromedical organisation and primary health care provider, the Royal Flying Doctor Service relies on your support.

We work in partnership with community health organisations across Australia to improve the health and well-being of rural communities. Not everyone in this big country has a GP up the road, or an emergency department around the corner. Aussies in bush communities and towns rely on the Royal Flying Doctor Service to help them get to treatment, or to bring specialists to them. You can all help keep the Flying Doctor flying as we continue to care for people in the bush.

Kaleb, the little hero

Five years ago newborn baby Kaleb was sleeping a lot and not feeding well. Based on Australia’s east coast, his parents were quick to seek medical assistance in their small town community hospital, which rapidly turned into a call to the Royal Flying Doctor Service to assist. Kaleb was suffering from a coagulation of his aorta, which dramatically affected his liver and his kidneys.

“If they hadn’t arrived Kaleb wouldn’t be with us today … I am so thankful to have him in my life spreading happiness and joy – I am thankful every day that he’s with us” – Kaleb’s mum.

And thankfully Kaleb has made a stunning recovery.

Fergus, the outback battler

Jackaroo Fergus had been driving late one afternoon on a remote cattle station when his world was literally turned upside down.

His 4WD flipped, leaving the teenage jackaroo struggling to breathe in the dark. He had factured several vertebrae, punctured both lungs, and was in urgent need of emergency care.

When the Flying Doctor came to his aid,  he was stabilised and taken to the nearest airstrip and flown out for the specialist care he needed.

“I know I’ve been given a second chance to live the rest of my life, thanks to the RFDS, and I can’t thank them enough.” – Fergus
