Clean the World is working in partnership with Corporate Aviation Responding in Emergencies (Care). This incredible group organizes private jet owners that donate their planes to transport supplies to disaster relief areas. They formed during Hurricane Katrina and are coming to the forefront now as an extremely valuable asset to assist. Spread the word of their incredible group.
Today, our first flight will leave Orlando Executive Airport at 12:45pm. We are transporting 4 doctors, a relief worker, missionary and Clean the World leadership directly to Port-au-Prince. We will have over 1,000 pounds of cargo including medical supplies, hurricane kits and boxes of Clean the World soap!
A second flight will most likely leave this afternoon from Orlando Executive. Additionally, flights are planned from Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale tomorrow evening and over the weekend. We will get thousands of pounds of cargo including hygiene products, medical supplies and water on this initial flights over the next few days.
Last night, a flight from Bridgeport, Connecticut brought us soap that originated from a school drive at Connetquot High School in Bohemia, New York. (we first blogged about this drive on December 20, 2009). This soap will make its way to Haiti in the upcoming days.
Lastly, we are organizing rescue missions out of Haiti as well. Corporate Aviation Responding in Emergencies will also provide transportation for those stuck in Port-au-Prince out of the country.
