Hoveraid UK is a volunteer only charity that exists
to promote the use of hovercraft as an appropriate response
to global problems of communication and transportation.
In 2000 they were in Mozambique providing aid to 10,000
people who were stranded on otherwise inaccessible mud banks
on the Save river at the height of the floods. Too shallow
for boats and too dangerous for helicopters, hovercraft
provided a perfect solution to help these people.
In Papua New Guinea their hovercraft, built by volunteers in
Gosport, Hants. (UK), serves as transportation for a
hospital's two doctors in the Western Province, providing
care and aid for 50,000 people in the region.
The hovercraft in Mozambique (top
image) is a
River Rover designated RR403, and the lower image is an RR402 in Papua New Guinea.
Thanks to Andy Mayo of Hoveraid for sending in the pictures.
