An airlift organization recognized last week by the State department as the first voluntary foreign aid unit in Ohio is conducting a fund-raising campaign.
Mike Stimac, president of United Missions Air Training and Transport Inc., which has its headquarters in Dayton, announced the campaign. Called UMATT, the organization airlifts medical aid and food and provides other emergency assistance to six East African nations.
Sen. Birch Bayh (D-Ind.) is working with charitable foundations and industries in behalf of UMATT, Stimac disclosed.
UMATT, which has nine planes flown by volunteer pilots, currently has offices in Celeveland, Columbus, Los Angeles, Dallas, New York City, London, Dublin, Ireland, and Aachen, Germany.
Stimac also made known that UMATT is no longer sponsored by the University of Dayton and the Marianists.
Stimac said persons in the Dayton area may send contributions to Box 523 Far Hills Post Office, Zip Code 45419.
