Humanitarian Aid Program

Showcasing how the aviation community can join together to aid those in need.

 

 

The Foundation supports humanitarian causes that use the power of aviation to help save lives, promote human welfare and alleviate suffering. Our focus is on restoring the basic necessities and improving the well-being of those in need as a result of global disasters and/or afflictions. In addition, the ISTAT Foundation collaborates with and supports non-governmental, not-for-profit organizations that provide air transportation for patients that have critical needs for medical treatment and cargo that is necessary to support humanitarian causes.
