Trukai supports Mountain Area Medical Airlift with K100, 000 for Defibrillator/Monitor

Thursday, July 22nd, 2021

MEDEVAC checks in-flight will now become a lot more hi-tech for Mountain Area Medical Airlift (MAMA) Foundation of Manolos Aviation, thanks to Trukai Industries Limited.

Trukai Industries Limited is supporting MAMA Foundation to procure a Zoll X Series Defibrillator. Valued at over K100, 000, the Zoll X Series Defibrillator is a compact device that comes with extensive monitoring capabilities making it ideal for in-flight and emergency medEvacs.

“Trying to monitor patient vitals in-flight has always been a challenge and now with the Zoll Defibrillator we can easily hook up to a patient and ensure that crucial readings for patient vitals are monitored effectively and accurately during medevacs,” Medevac Nurses say.

Trukai Industries Chief Executive Officer, Alan Preston said the company is happy to support MAMA Foundation progress their great work by equipping their operation with the right equipment to help save lives.

“We have supported Manolos previously where we assisted with mobile ultrasound scan devices for mothers.”

“We are pleased to be supporting a great cause like this and know the Trukai support will go a long way in helping MAMA Foundation in its work and medevac patients.”

“This support is part of our corporate social responsibility under our TruCare banner which focuses on giving back to the communities in which we live and operate in.”

“We acknowledge the great work that Manolos Aviation is doing through the MAMA Foundation and we are delighted to be part of their journey in helping save lives and provide healthcare services to remote areas of Papua New Guinea,” Preston said.

“On behalf of Manolos Aviation and Mountain Area Medical Airlift Foundation we are grateful to Trukai Industries for their continuous support,” Manolos Aviation’s HR & Marketing Consultant Phyonna Silikara said.

“It is gestures like these that make Trukai a great PNG company, and it is also because of this that we, at MAMA Foundation, are able to effectively carryout medevac operations.”

“Medevacs, and especially those in Papua New Guinea are not an easy feat. Imagine than, trying to monitor patient vital readings with a helicopter that is moving at a constant non-linear motion. It is a challenge and we salute our nurses for working through these challenges."

“So being able to simply hook up a patient with a set of cords, switch on the Defibrillator and obtain reading, during a medivac is a God Send.”

“This donation means so many things, three of which I will highlight now,

  1. It means Trukai Industries as a company understands the important contribution that medevac programs such as this offer to the overall health care sector in Papua New Guinea.

  2. That our Nurses will be better equipped to effectively monitor patients enroute to hospitals, reducing risks and increasing efficiency.

  3. And finally, that our people those in remote Papua New Guinea whose health care is just as important as anyone else’s can now, be reassured, that they will be better taken care of during medevacs.”
