Good Samaritan Aviation has delivered an oxygen concentrator for the m/v PACIFIC LINK in Papua New Guinea. This medical device was donated by Spacim Pikinini-PNG inc. (a health care organization) and Australia Rotary International.

“We are grateful to our partners from other parts of PNG and Australia to provide much needed medical equipment and supplies where needed,” officials from Good Samaritan said in a prepared statement.

Good Samaritan Aviation has been working with YWAM Ships Kona since September. The organization escorted the PACIFIC LINK to Wewak and will be working with the ship in remote parts of the Sepik River.

“It’s been great to partner with YWAM since they arrived in Wewak a few weeks ago,” Good Samaritan’s Mark Palm said.


Oxygen concentrators are used to provide oxygen therapy to chronic patients. These devices have a wide price range depending on the brand, but can cost as much as $3,000. PACIFIC LINK medical volunteers will now have use of this technological in on-board clinics.

YWAM Ships Kona Director Brett Curtis expressed gratitude for Spacim Pikinini, Australia Rotary and Good Samaritan’s dedication to the health care outreach efforts in Northern Papua New Guinea.

“We would like to thank them for their kind donation and we look forward to our continued partnership with Samaritan Aviation,” Curtis said.

Donated supplies make a significant difference to YWAM Ships Kona’s budget. To help ensure medical volunteers have the supplies they need, visit our web site by clicking the procurement button or donate toward equipment.
