The lockdowns around the world are easing, down and people are slowly gaining the confidence back to venture out and involve in matters that are pressing for a society to function normally. One of such activities is medical flight charity. Countries like the United Kingdom depend heavily on public contributions to keep the air ambulance services running. Here are a few developments that stand evidence to the fact that they are inching towards normalcy.
