1.5 million Puerto Ricans know what that means:
no drinking water nor hot water, no heating, no roof over your head, no food...
no electricity... no gasoline from gas station or money from cash machine...
and now you have to wait for emergency aid while you have to survive.
10 days no aid... and left for weeks without drinking water, medicine and electricity...
Airport San Juan and Rafael Hernández were open within 24 hours after hurricane Maria hit the island (landing was possible under visual flight conditions). Alternate airports were Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) - and the emergency aid could have been transported by boat and/or helicopter.
From London to Perth (Australia) in 17 hours. From Singapur to New York in 18 hours.
We can travel the world in less than a day, but we are not able to deliver aid material on time..!
6 days and 12 tons of aid material - that is a drop in the ocean.
Imagine that: we could have helped with 300 tons of aid material in 6 days!
What a difference...
How about 100 tons of coordinated emergency aid in 15 hours..?
How about a second delivery with 100 tons of aid material within the following 12 hours..?
After a natural disaster it takes on average 5 days for aid to arrive. In a world where we can fly anywhere in 24 hours we asked ourselves "why 5 days“ — and decided to change it.
Haiti 2010, Japan 2011, Puerto Rico 2017, Indonesia 2018 and many others...
More lives could have been saved and the situation itself could have improved if aid had arrived faster and coordinated.
At Moonlight Air Organization we are building the world’s first Humanitarian Aid Airline.
In order to save more lives faster, our aim is to be the first in the air and the first on the ground.
Based in Switzerland we will have a cargo aircraft and crew on the tarmac ready to fly 24/7 full of life giving aid within hours of a disaster. We can reach any area in the world within 24 hours reducing preventable deaths.
And it doesn’t stop there.
We will continue to ferry supplies until the disaster is brought under control.
We support and boost charitable organization as a „charity for charities“! We help the helpers and are not a competitor. Moonlight Air Organization will create value for a meaningful difference.
"For more than 50 years, Friedensdorf International has been committed to providing medical care to children worldwide who have no chance of a humane life. Violence and war, lack of medical care, lack of hygiene, lack of equipment and lack of knowledge cause untold suffering.
Our relief efforts for children in developing countries and crisis areas are logistically complex, difficult to organize and costly.
When we heard about Moonlight Air Organization, we immediately recognized the benefits. The concept as well as the improved cost-benefit ratio is not only a benefit for us and the children we work for, but it also opens up many new opportunities for us.
Thanks to Moonlight Air Organization, we can in future make the processes of our worldwide help for children in need more efficient and faster. This relieves pain and saves children's lives.“

"After natural disasters, water is essential to survival.
By using our most basic water filters, we can supply 10'000 people with clean drinking water for a few days - no matter how dirty the water is.
But even in various projects in developing countries, our filters can be used in a sustainably way for the purification and production of drinking water. However, transport logistics and administrative work are increasingly facing major challenges.
Cooperating with the Moonlight Air Organization is very important to us and at the same time opens up many new opportunities to provide significantly more people in different parts of the world with clean drinking water much faster.
Clean drinking water is a human right and not a private privilege.“

"Nobody should suffer or die from a curable disease - this is the vision of FAIRMED.
Therefore we organize, coordinate and participate in delivering of medicine to the poorest regions of the world. Fulfilling this task is not always easy, because today's transports are expensive, slow and associated with high and time-consuming work and planning effort.
The idea that an organization carries out the entire process more quickly, efficiently and professionally, and also coordinates and optimizes the aid deliveries in order to save costs, is something that we at FAIRMED think is amazing. In our numerous projects, we have experienced at first hand - again and again - how important a quickly organized and coordinated emergency aid is.
FAIRMED sees this innovative transport service of the Moonlight Air Organization as a simplified and accelerated way of providing aid, which can lead to a positive change in the future."
Managing Director FAIRMED
"NewGreenTec sees many valuable synergies in working with Moonlight Air Organization. The number of disasters is growing and fast action is required.
In an emergency situation, people need electrical power for lighting, drinking water, communication, medical care and rescue equipment. With our independent solar and wind turbine power system we are able to re-build local power without a need for fuel (gasoline, diesel, oil).
A 24/7 flight readiness and high transport capacity together with power equipment is a highly efficient combination for disaster response. But also in the field of humanitarian aid; this kind of transportation system could be used for green energy, drinking water and agriculture projects in developing countries, which is of considerable benefit for affected people and companies alike.
The resources are available from different organizations but must first be transported over long distances. The idea of a dedicated humanitarian airline together with corresponding services has a great potential to reduce people's suffering and provide further benefits.“

The solution is often closer than we think and sometimes we need a different point of view to make the right decision.
In our understanding „creating value“ means we deliver not only aid material; we bring perspectives, hope and a future for those who need it the most. We do this by delivering aid material in larger quantities, faster and more regularly.
Therefore, we can stimulate the local industry, create win-win and B2B / B2C situations, train and further educate locals through our partners.
WE CONNECT - USE THE POWER OF WE - TO CREATE VALUE
