Oct 17 TN2
Why I'm a PWAP Charity Champion: The RFDS provides a service to those who cannot easily access health care.  I am in awe of the kind and caring people who provide care and comfort in times of need.The RFDSalso provides regular fly-in fly-out GP, Nursing and Allied Health Clinics to rural and remote communities. So vital a service that has to rely on charity to keep the planes in the air.
