How We Are Different
Stratus: Changing the world through flight…
Stratus is dedicated to helping make a difference through flight. Through short and long term solutions we are focused on helping those that suffer on a daily basis from diseases and illnesses which are preventable and curable.
From late 2014, Stratus will deliver partnerships with local organisations and clinics and enable access to high levels of medical treatment to those currently living with a curable and preventable illness within developing countries. Malaria is curable and preventable. Epidemics from humanitarian disasters can be controlled safely and those living with disabilities can learn to fly. Stratus is making an incredible difference through flight.
Stratus requires a wealth of medical professionals to get involved with the operations we will carry out each year from late 2014. From medical professionals who specialise with performing life changing eye operations to doctors and nurses who are on hand and ready to help when a natural disaster when it strikes. Here at Stratus we strive to offer the highest level of patient care to everyone we help through our life changing flights.
Stratus would be delighted to receive volunteer applications from medical students who are seeking hands on experience that will further educate them in the medical profession.
Whether you are a first year medic or in your final year of medical studies, Stratus looks forward to hearing from you and helping you with gaining vital career experience.
Prevent blindness- Saving sight
The human eye is an incredible organ, it defines each and every one of us-making us unique. In developing countries people are becoming blind because of inadequate access to medical eye treatment from their local clinic. A treatable disease can go on to leave the person blind for the rest of their lives, in children it can cause them to die within 12 months of losing their sight. Stratus wants this to stop happening for good.
“Save Our Sight” enables those without access to treatment the resources to be seen by a medical professional to help protect and prevent them from losing their sight for good.
A simple, delicate procedure with incredible benefits carried out by a dedicated Stratus medical volunteer with years of medical practice experience.
Focused on long term solutions, Stratus will educate local medical professionals in the areas “Save our Sight” programmes operate making them aware of the symptoms and treatment of eye related illnesses.
Stratus will give local clinics the equipment and training to save sight so when we move on to a new area to fight blindness, they have the tools and knowledge to continue helping those be free from blindness.
Stratus will treat cataracts, trachoma and vitamin A deficiency within developing countries worldwide as it is here where 80% of where the worlds blindness occurs. Stratus wants to reduce the number of people becoming blind from a treatable eye disease.
