The Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia (RFDS) is a not-for-profit charitable organisation that provides free aeromedical emergency and comprehensive healthcare services to people who live, work and travel in regional and remote Australia.
The RFDS relies on generous contributions from individuals, community groups, business and the corporate sector as well as funding provided by the Commonwealth, state and territory governments to help meet the costs associated with running a 24-hour emergency and comprehensive healthcare service.
The RFDS relies on your help to:
- buy vital medical equipment
- purchase and outfit aircraft (at a cost of more than $8 million each)
- develop a range of outback and rural health initiatives
There are many ways in which you, your workplace, community group or school can help the Flying Doctor. By raising money and awareness about the work of the RFDS, you are helping to save lives.
