Mission 1: Disaster Management
Over the past 15 years the number of natural catastrophes has nearly doubled. Over the next few years a further increase is estimated. In 2015 over 1,000 natural catastrophes were counted including draughts, earthquakes, flooding, typhoons and hurricanes, cold waves and other catastrophes.
Let's have a closer look at the earthquakes for example.
From 1980 to and including 1999 (20 years) a total of 2,795 earthquakes with magnitude of 6.0 and up have been recorded. 62 earthquakes reached magnitude from 7.5 to 8.3.
Mission 2: Mobile Hospital
Every 5 seconds someone's eyes go blind, 75% of all blindness could be avoided. Children who go blind, cannot go to school, will not find work, and the vicious circle continues. Allowing one child just see again takes 30 minutes and if necessary our partner provide the kid with reading glasses. With our mobile hospital we are fully independent regarding local situation and able to execute heart and other operation as well. This is just the first step of how we can change someones life.
But there is a lot more work ahead in this sector.
As example, every 20 seconds one life is lost to Tuberculosis (increase by 200% within the last 15 years). Every minute one life is lost because of malaria and every 2 minutes another human being becomes the victim of the Leprosy bacterium.
Mission 3: Sustainable Humanitarian Aid
Up to 50% or in other words; nearly 4 billion humans have less than USD 2.- per day to survive. No health insurance, worse living conditions, no car, no safe roof over their heads, no regular job, no or less food and drinking water, no education, no future prospects. This is one reason why corruption, human trafficking, forced prostitution and also refugee flows exist.
In some cultures; if you give a gift people want to give something back or like to pay for even if they have nothing. If locals are unable to do what is typical in their culture, there is no value.
