Mercy Air recently continued flying in support of Flying For life, this time taking a dental team up to a special needs centre in a very rural part of the Limpopo province in the north of South Africa.
|Again, a very early start was required|
|Getting to know Patrick on the flight up|
|The team on landing at Tshikondeni|
The centre was reached after a two hour flight and a 45 min drive through the drizzle and low cloud on muddy dirt roads in an old taxi. It still saved a three day round trip by road from Johannesburg though!
The dentists work through "Smile of Joy', an organisation founded to work with the underprivileged and special needs children.
|Eish, makes you shiver! But lasting relief is not far away|
|The waiting kids getting some colour on the wall|
For the Mercy Air team.
