After a hectic 20 days of touring the USA (Iowa, Wisconsin and Missouri) it is back to the field and to ensuring that all things are in working order ready for the next set of drops and new girls starting on training. In order to fund all that we do, there is a social entrepreneurship, WAASPS, that organisation provides the jobs for the trainied staff and releases them to work with MoM and AvTech. When we got back the runway was unusable, with a heavily overgrown undershoot. So, within hours of hitting African soil we were all running at top speed to get the facilities back into a safe and usable condition. Thankfully Matthew stepped in and did some amazing work to ensure that within 18 hours of being back there was at least one usable runway.
Just maintaining a usable facility requires dedication and commitment - and I am pleased to say that we have a fantastic team ready to step up to the mark!
