Flying Angels: Saving Lives one Flight at a Time

"I paid a doctor to go from Italy to Romania to pick up a baby but we lost the baby because we arrived too late.”

To not lose another life, he started a foundation called 'Flying Angels', where funds are readily available to fly the child in need and his parents, to a doctor or vice-versa. A scientific committee reviews the application and finds the right specialist for that medical condition.

"The president will decide which is the doctor in charge for that kind of disease. The doctor will study the documents and say, yes or no. Once the scientific committee agrees, then we issue the tickets.”

The medical complications include everything from heart problems to cancer and transplants.  Even though the foundation started about a year and a half ago, more than 30 lives have already been saved in different parts of the world.

"We had children coming from everywhere. From Asia, Vietnam, to Europe, from Europe to America.”

The foundation receives its funds from donations. Pollio says the money doesn't have to be given straight to the foundation. Instead donors can directly buy a plane ticket for a child or doctor. That way, they know exactly how their money is being used.

"We think the moment you give a better life to somebody you are passing good faith and this good faith is then passed on to the world.”

The work can be overwhelming, but Pollio says helping a child and possibly saving a life far outweighs the challenges. It's something he describes as a 'tsunami of good'.
