Behind HALO - A Team's Effort (1/3)
HALO is a powerful program. It helps us to carry hope to the most desparate in the Himalayas, rescuing those who have no access to emergency medical services. But behind every rescue, is a strong team that puts in lots of hours and expertise to make it happen.
When HALO is confirmed, it's a race against time.
While the Government Team manages the permissions and paperwork, the locally trained health workers communicate details of patients' conditions. The trained professionals from CAN*, one of our partner organizations, and local health workers keep the patient stable until HALO arrives.
When the permission to fly is granted, the first phase of the rescue is complete.
