In a land characterised by vast distances, the AMS has become a vital conduit for delivery of emergency and critical healthcare services to rural and urban areas. We work closely with Provincial Departments of Health and health workers in the communities to assess needs and implement appropriate healthcare programmes.
Our commitment to saving lives and changing lives knows no boundaries!
Established in 1966 by the SA Red Cross Society and formed into an Independent Trust in 1994. The SA Red Cross Air Mercy Service (AMS) is a non-profit organisation with bases in the Western Cape (Cape Town & Oudtshoorn), Northern Cape (Kimberley), KwaZulu-Natal (Durban & Richards Bay), Mpumalanga (Nelspruit), Limpopo (Polokwane),the Free State (Bloemfontein) and Gauteng that provide an air ambulance network, outreach and emergency rescue service to metropolitan areas and remote rural communities. With the expansion of AMS, we will soon be opening a base in the Gauteng Province. It is the mission of the AMS to contribute to the improvement in the quality of life of all communities, facilitate access to equitable and effective healthcare and the provision of aero-medical and other associated humanitarian services.
The AMS plays a vital role in providing not only emergency rescue and air ambulance services but also a community outreach programme taking critically needed healthcare to impoverished communities.
The AMS will provide help whenever and wherever it is needed. The AMS is committed to Changing Lives, Saving Lives.
