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.
