The SkyLIFE journey began in 2010 with one of the worst natural disasters till this day, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit and devastated Haiti; reducing much of the country to rubble, taking the lives of thousands of innocent people.
The initial quake was no doubt devastating, but what was even more shocking were the valiant but ineffective relief efforts in the immediate aftermath towards the quake. Our team, now called SkyLIFE, watched helplessly as thousands of unnecessary deaths resulted due to the lack of access of vital aid that was stacked up at overcrowded ports and airfields. Main roads were blocked by debris, rendering them impassable for trucks loaded with relief supplies. Even with the monumental global response that was mounted, tens of thousands of initial survivors lost their lives because aid could not be delivered across “the last mile.”
It was while witnessing these tragedies in Haiti that our Founder and CEO, Jeffrey Potter, created The SkyLIFE Company.
The company was founded with the paramount goal of ensuring that people never have to endure the same suffering that the thousands of citizens with in Haiti had to experience.
