ISTAT Learning Lab
The ISTAT Foundation Humanitarian Aid Program showcases how the aviation community can join together to aid those in need. In 2020, 15 organizations across six countries received humanitarian aid funds.
During this session, Richie Wall, chair of the Humanitarian Aid Program, will talk with three grant recipients about the impact of the Foundation’s support. Hear success stories from Gabriella Morris, chief philanthropy officer of World Food Program (USA); Naomi Lehrer, philanthropy manager of Royal Flying Doctor Service, Victoria; and Paul Beck, partnership manager of Mission Aviation Fellowship. In addition, Steven J. Smith, president and CEO of Airlink – an organization born from the ISTAT Foundation – will share their story and vital efforts made to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and other crises worldwide.
