The Royal Flying Doctors Service is an Australian wide organisation that works 24/7 to provide healthcare to all individuals, especially those who in rural areas that do not have immediate access to resources. In the midst of COVID-19, they have established a vaccine rollout plan for these rural communities that has already benefited by over fifteen-hundred individuals alone across Western Australia.
Currently providing for over 20 communities in the Kimberley region alone outside of Broome, the RFDS aim to extend their support further and allow everyone equal facilities and opportunities for good health.
