Stratus Humanitarian Response is the transport of aid to disaster stricken zones worldwide following a natural disaster.
From 2014 we aim to be on the ground 72 hours after initial disaster strikes, so we can bring stability to the area affected and to offer treatment to those needing help.
The most common problem that arises from a natural disaster is not just the initial disaster striking but the weeks that follow after, the high risk of epidemics is often what causes those who survive to become ill.
By Stratus arriving quickly and efficiently just three days after the initial impact into the disaster zone, we reduce the chances of people developing illnesses such as septicaemia.
Whilst on the ground in the disaster zone we shall offer survivors the following:
- Food and Water
- Shelter and clothing
- Medical treatment of minor injuries
- Medical check up to reduce disease amongst survivors
- Electricity generators to deliver warmth and light
The Stratus volunteers will consist of search and rescuers, medical professionals and logistics staff to help make this a successful mission within the disaster zone. One of the Stratus teams will also deal with the identification of missing people, erecting boards of those missing and those who have been found safe and well.
