Sofitel Luxury Hotels and Global Flying Hospitals Sponsorship Signing
Sofitel Luxury Hotels is launching a unique and visionary initiative in a profound new role by engaging as a corporate sponsor of Global Flying Hospitals, the humanitarian medical charity, as it initiates a sponsorship signing ceremony at its Macau SAR property, Sofitel Macau At Ponte 16, on January 11th, 2012.
Global Flying Hospitals is establishing its Asia Region Head Office in Macau SAR, placing it close to many developing countries and allowing easy access to China based aircraft refurbishing and servicing firms.
With this signing, Sofitel is demonstrating to guests and the whole Asia region, that it has a strong corporate social responsibility in place, of extending help to less fortunate people in developing countries worldwide. In supporting Global Flying Hospitals, the charity is able to further develop its medical care and training logistics to an ailing world.
Life is Magnifique
Sofitel’s tag line states; Life is Magnifique. Meaning life in a Sofitel hotel property is indeed magnificent, with a strong French influence from this French hotel group. Global Flying Hospitals tag line states; Life is beautiful! Share it. Which simply means, for those enjoying life, let us also share with our less fortunate neighbours in developing countries. Both the management of Sofitel and Global Flying Hospitals agree, that life is indeed magnifique … and should be shared.
Global Flying Hospitals (GFH) is inventing the future with medical aviation, in an aggressive and exciting model of world change. Humanitarian medical charities have functioned with a piecemeal approach for decades, providing one and two week medical missions to developing countries to treat patients suffering serious medical conditions. However, within this last decade our world has progressively and substantially worsened and our population is increasing at one billion every 12 years.
Breathtaking New Vision
GFH has a breathtaking new vision for our planet. A vision to lift developing countries into self-sufficiency and sustainability in their medical care for their suffering citizens, and a model to address the dearth of natural disasters that destroy lives. It embraces building a small fleet of Boeing 747 Training Hospitals, Hercules C130 cargo aircraft and single engine turbine aircraft, positioning as the world’s medical aviation fleet, and tour-de-force of humanitarian medical care.
The New Global Paradigm
Global Flying Hospitals was founded in 2001 by Neill Newton, an Australian, international business consultant, author and pilot. He had a vision for only one aircraft and yearly multiple medical missions, yet now woefully inadequate in our complex 2012 world. Today, with his International CEO; Kelly Barker and the management team, GFH has been repositioned into becoming the medical logistics resource and training model for governments of developing countries, and medical charities working within.
The Global Flying Hospitals team has a “magnifique obsession”; to flood the world with tools and training to stop the deterioration. Four Boeing Training Hospitals will provide training in differing medical specialisms. All will contain high-tech surgical theatres, the latest medical equipment showcased by medical supply firms, along with observation decks, hands-on training, tele-medicine and video-conferencing. Healthcare workers in developing countries under “country contract” to GFH, will be trained in modern medical procedures. And this obsession, will flow down to the operation of cargo and smaller turbine aircraft, so that every region, city and village can be reached with 21st Century medical care.
The Sofitel Vision
Sofitel Luxury Hotels has a vision. To not only extend its French influenced luxury hotels worldwide for all to enjoy, but to share in the healing of our ailing planet, by supporting this humanitarian medical charity; the catalyst for bringing healing and health to those in need. By staying at a Sofitel Luxury Hotel and choosing Sofitel as your hotel of choice, you will be able to say; Life is Magnifique … and to share with others via Global Flying Hospitals.
