We are delighted to offer you complimentary Amref Flying Doctors 'Maisha' Air Ambulance cover with your holiday to East Africa. It's unlikely that you'll require the service of an air ambulance during your holiday, but if you do require remote medical care, you can take comfort in the knowledge that you are fully covered for your air ambulance evacuation if required. The Air Ambulance is fitted with intensive care life saving equipment as per international standards. Guest will be transferred to the nearest hospital and Amref will take over liaising with your overseas travel insurance provider. With each booking, Somak pays USD$5 for the client's Air Ambulance Cover. In the absence of any illness or injuries the USD$5 cover is donated to Amref Health Africa. The donation is put towards regional humanitarian work, charity evacuations and surgical outreach programmes for the less fortunate in East Africa.
Amref Health Africa started life in 1957 as the Flying Doctors of East Africa, and since then they have built over 50 years' experience working with marginalised and vulnerable people across sub-Saharan Africa. Every year they help 13 million people in 30 countries. Amref Health Africa focuses on the needs of women and children. They believe that doing this improves the health of the whole community. They've made pregnancy safer by training over half a million health workers, who provide a lifeline for mothers and children in remote and poor communities in Africa.
