A GREAT gesture by Australia’s richest woman, billionaire Gina Rinehart. She is funding the installation of ventilators, intravenous pumps, cardiac monitors and other lifesaving equipment on all Royal Flying Doctor Service aircraft and bases across central and eastern Australia.
Her $6 million donation is designed to help remote areas fight the coronavirus pandemic. The donation is reminiscent of Kerry Packer’s $2.5 million funding of defibrillators, quickly nicknamed “Packer Whackers”, in all NSW ambulances after his life was saved by a defibrillator following a heart attack in 1990. Generosity plus.
