Mission:

To expand humanitarian medical care throughout the developing world, by providing advanced, high-tech hospital resources and medical training ... needed in our very ailing world.

Results:

Global Flying Hospitals is a growing and vibrant charity with a powerful vision. Our focus is on Hercules cargo aircraft ferrying roll-off 21st Century high-tech surgical hospitals. We invite you to join as a supporter, sponsor, cheerleader or a Global Partner. (Global Partners donates $23 a month for one year). Individual donations of $30, $50, $100, $1,000 or more are most welcomed.. Corporate sponsorship is invited, and a number of high profiles brands are already in alliance. This gives a high profile to your CSR. Our base in Macau SAR, next door to Hong Kong. The Macau Government has provided free landing and parking fees for humanitarian aircraft, and it's the geographical 'bull's-eye' for reaching developing countries. This gives HUGE savings and efficiency of operations.

Target demographics:

One-third of our planet's inhabitants, or two billion people, are in dire need of medical care - and with an exploding population a new way is needed. Children are the worst affected.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

In the past, we have provided eye surgeries to app. 300 per year, and other surgical treatments as Cleft Pallet, at about 200 a year, by utilizing normal commercial aircraft to deliver medical professional volunteers.This will dramatically change as we hand over flying hospitals to humanitarian charities that are already well established.

Reviews for Global Flying Hospitals

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known the founder (Neill Newton) since 2012 when we met in China. He shred his story of the vision of taking the hospital to the people and countries in need. This was truly visionary, although there was already a flying eye hospital in existence. Since that time he and his team have modified the vision to be more practical than a wide bodied jet, using cargo aircraft and purpose built roll-off mobile hospitals, in order to access unprepared and small airstrips in remote areas. In our changing world, more than ever, people need help. Deserving people need our help.

Neill and I connected over 6 years ago through our mutual passion for making a difference in humanitarian logistics and the sustainable provision of medical care to those most in need. His laser sharp focus on his vision has seen him achieve success after success no matter how immense the challenges!

He truly possesses the kind of infectious determination that is so rare today, making him without a doubt an exceptional leader in global humanitarian medical care and I sincerely hope that our path will cross again sooner than later.

Until then, Neill - I wish you and all at Global Flying Hospitals only the very best and encourage everyone to support your cause. With both natural and man made disasters on rapid increase we all need you.

Thank you

As a nurse, a social media entrepreneur and a mother, I can see the importance of the value that Global Flying Hospitals brings to the world. The ability to bring state-of-the art medical teams right to the location of the emergency is an important asset and critically valuable solution for a world filled with natural catastrophes and human-generated disasters. I encourage anyone who has the empathy to feel the pain and suffering of those less fortunate than ourselves to support Global Flying Hospitals in anyway they can, as a much needed and valuable resource for medical emergency and a force first responder social stability.

In a world of increasing natural and man made disasters, there is a growing need for resources that can replace "boots on the ground" with humanitarian medical aid on the ground - Global Flying Hospitals repurposing of military cargo planes into flying hospitals - swords into plowshares - offers a major alternative solution and brings world class medical treatment to the innocent victims of war and natural disaster.

Supporting organizations like Orbis Flying Eye Hospitals, Doctors Without Borders and other NGOs — Global Flying Hospitals, a non governmental organization, fills a critical need in professional medical treatment for catastrophic events and disaster recovery. Corporate, institutional, NGO and individual Donor support will help bring this important and timely life saving resource directly to those who need it most.

What we do today will affect tomorrow in our world. Or what we do not do will also change our world. I choose to support Global Flying Hospitals as they have this powerful plan by taking sophisticated medical care to the most poorest regions. World changing!!

I am the CEO and co-founder of the Bottom Billion Fund, a nonprofit, microfinance investment fund. We are committed to investment in high quality microfinance that includes people living in extreme poverty (living on less than $1.25/day). We believe in sustainable and scalable solutions that improve the incomes and opportunities of our poorest brothers and sisters. Often for these poorest clients, access to the basics of primary health care is a major challenge and a powerful way to end preventable child and maternal deaths,

Global Flying Hospitals and its founder Neill Newton came to my attention through my friend Peter Young, who introduced me to Neill. Neill's vision of providing temporary, high quality health care in remote areas as a stepping stone to permanent clinics and hospitals is right on the mark.

The poorest people in poor countries and regions in the world need access to health care. Global Flying Hospitals is a wonderful solution. I laud this vision and urge broad support to save the lives of women and children.
