Today, we achieved what was beginning to seem impossible - we received a letter, stamped from the Office of the President of Ghana. The contents stated that we are allowed to start research into methods for aerial supply in case of emergencies using CH701 and CH801 aircraft.
This is the result of many years of lobbying - and at last it has come to pass that we can start.
We need ideas - we have some... we need more... we also need funds - but we get used to working without them, so don't worry about that!!!
To find out more about what we do at Medicine on the Move and how we are using aircraft to change lives through building and flying as well as flying medical and agricultural personnel to rural locations, take a look at our website http://www.medicineonthemove.org/
then, if you are really interested in being in the 'design loop'for dropping bags of rice, anti-venom and other amazing things, please e-mail us via firstname.lastname@example.org expressing interest in contributing in ideas, funds or other ways, and we can then join you up to the 'closed' MoM discussion group on this topic.
This is a landmark achievement in this part of the world - and we invite you to help as we work to provide what could be one of the most amazing humanitarian aviation solutions using Zenith Aircraft (in fact any LSA or experimental) in Africa.
We look forward to hearing from you - and to sharing back here when we have some prototypes working !
[NOTE: Donations to MoM can be sent directly to Zenith Aircraft - please advise us that they are sent to email@example.com and mark the donation as 'WAASPS/MOM Donation when sending to Zenith' you may further identify how you want the donation used in your mail (e.g. aerial drops, flying medical staff, training, etc) THANK YOU]
