Chad's wavering history of civil conflict between the North and South have stunted growth and investment in infrastructure. Consequently, roads are often impassable and transport networks are meagre. Many hospitals have been damaged or destroyed and sporadic episodes of famine have caused repeated nutrition crises.
Amidst these struggles, many lives have been saved and communities assisted owing to the invaluable work of our aviation partner which provides air transport services to remote regions of Chad. They facilitate development and emergency relief through the delivery of resources and personnel where ground travel is not viable due to compromised safety, reliability or speed.
Having the luxury of air travel enables more regular access to a greater sphere of influence. This in turn permits a wide range of beneficiary agencies to monitor their activities and make more informed decisions. Some key services involved in this project include:
- Medevacs/ medical supply deliveries
- NGO transport needs for staff and equipment
- Government staff travel
- Aerial searches
- Natural Disaster response
- Local training
Key Areas of Expenditure:
- Staff training
- Aircraft maintenance
- Resource provision
