A village holding up the knife that was used when the accident happened.

A 24 year old male from Fogomaiyu, Tari-Pori District, Hela Province accidently cut his legs whiles chopping a tree on the afternoon of Monday 16th September 2019. Because the cut was deep and severe he lost a lot of blood. He bled continuously to the next day. The radio operator in Fogomaiyu called MAF Technologies (formerly CRMF) to report the accident and to seek immediate medical evacuation out of Fogomaiyu.

MAF Technologies (formerly CRMF) sent a message via SMS to a doctor at Moro clinic for diagnosis of the patient and he responded immediately to the urgent call. Arrangements were made and the patient and a guardian were referred to the Mendi Hospital for medical attention and treatment.

MAF Technologies (formerly CRMF) advised Fogomaiyu to prepare the patient for the medical evacuation, and bring him to a clear location for the helicopter to do the medical evacuation. Once they arrived at the Moro Clinic the patient wound was treated and dressed there afterwards was transferred to Mendi Hospital for further medical treatment.

We thank the Lord for the new partnership with the Oil Search Moro Clinic who was just there at the right time and vicinity of the accident. They responded to our plight and save a life by utilizing their resources.
