WHO WE ARE

PAMAS is a unique ministry in several ways. First, it is the only air medical evacuation service of its kind in the Philippines that is available to everyone regardless of their financial resources. Secondly, it operates by faith, through donations, and is solely staffed by volunteers. These volunteers share the same passion to carry the great news of the Gospel to the world.

PAMAS was established in 2007.  Dwayne Harris, a helicopter and fixed-wing pilot/mechanic, was inspired by Gospel Ministries International to help start a much needed aviation ministry in the Philippines. Dwayne has been directing the ministry from the start and with the help of many volunteers the work has grown and expanded to cover three main areas of the Philippines with air support in Palawan, Luzon, and Mindanao.

PAMAS currently has 5 pilots and operates one R44 II helicopter and four airplanes. These include a Cessna 172, 182, and 206, and a Piper Twin Comanche. More than 700 flight hours are logged by volunteer pilots each year, with 80% of the flights being medical evacuation cases.

Early in 2017 PAMAS partnered with the Philippine Department of Health in Palawan to provide aviation medical evacuation services to remote islands and mountain villages. In return, they provide help with fuel costs. This has not only saved even more lives but widened PAMAS’s sphere of influence.

PAMAS is a Philippine registered, non-profit organization.
