Starship National Air Ambulance Service

Right now we urgently need to raise $235,000 to keep the Starship National Air Ambulance flying. The Starship National Air Ambulance Service flew 183 retrieval missions in 2018 bringing critically ill children to Starship from all over New Zealand. 

This invaluable service brings children from all over the country to Starship to receive life saving care.

 

 

Year-round the Starship National Air Ambulance Service flies top medical experts to life-threatening emergencies around the country.

These vary from complications arising from normal childhood illnesses such as the flu to accidents (drowning, car crashes, sporting injuries); as well as children suffering from heart conditions, seizures and meningitis. 

These specialists stabilise the children and allow them to be brought safely to Starship where they can receive the care they need.

Starship Foundation raises $1.5 million annually to fund this service in a variety of ways which includes staff training and aviation costs.

The Air Ambulance Service flies all over the country. Here are the locations it has visited over the last three months:
