The COH Foundation (COH) seeks to provide a ship-based humanitarian assistance / disaster-relief (HADR) platform. The ship incorporates state-of the-art hospital facilities, an array of coalition medical personnel, extensive air-lift capability, heavy equipment and emergency supplies in the context of a multinational, nation-state sponsored, public-private partnership. With the support of the US Government and the international community, this initiative when operational will respond to unforeseen catastrophic events faster and better equipped than any other military or civilian element in existence. There is an immediate need for such capacity and it is estimated that the initiative will benefit upwards of 20 million lives during the useful life of the ship.
The Excelsior project continues to move forward. We are now actively engaged in ship-refurbishment funding discussions and various political aspects. While our primary goal remains the Excelsior initiative, COH Foundation continues to work tactical missions and related events in support of our Foundation's goals of “Providing Humanitarian Assistance and Promoting Peace throughout the World”
