Airlink is currently responding to multiple crises, including:
- URGENT Hurricane Ida – Airlink is responding to Hurricane Ida in advance of its expected landfall near New Orleans, Louisiana on the morning of Sunday, August 29 as a Category 4 storm. Airlink is positioning search and rescue teams and other volunteers over the weekend, and is working closely with its network of NGO partners to address other critical needs.
- URGENT Haiti Earthquake – 1.2M people were impacted by the recent 7.2M earthquake in southwestern Haiti. Airlink is sending aid and responders for 8 relief organizations to help with search and rescue, medical, shelter, sanitation, and restarting the local economy. Airlink’s response is expected to continue through to long-term recovery.
- West Tennessee Flooding: At least 21 people were killed and less than 10 remain unaccounted for after record-breaking rain sent floodwaters surging through rural communities just 70 miles west of Nashville. In some areas, up to 17 inches of rain fell in less than 24 hours. Airlink is supporting one nonprofit with flights for volunteers and staff who will assist with muck-and-gut & mold remediation operations, allowing residents to repair and return to their homes quickly.
Afghanistan: Airlink is closely monitoring the situation in Afghanistan. President and CEO, Steve Smith, discusses the operational parameters in the aftermath of a disaster and provides insight into what is currently happening inside Afghanistan on Airlink’s blog. Read more here.
