Continental Micronesia Cares

U.S. Carrier's Asia-Pacific Employees Send Personal Donations to Assist in Aceh Relief Efforts.


Continental Micronesia The Asian-Pacific Employees of Continental Micronesia - the only U.S. flag carrier to operate scheduled services to Bali – are doing their bit to assist the massive humanitarian relief effort now underway in Band Aceh, North Sumatra.

Able to Look Beyond their Own Interests

Continental, like many major international carriers, is confronting its shares of financial difficulties caused by rising fuel prices and intense fare competition from budget carriers. And, in order to remain financially viable, the airline has been forced to undertake strong measures to conserve costs, including staff reductions and pay cuts.

Nonetheless, when the tragic earthquake of December 26, 2004 and the massive tsunami struck, the workers at Continental Micronesia rolled up their sleeves, determined, despite the financial uncertainties of their own circumstances, to "give a damn" about their fellow man. Various fund raising activities were launched and collection jars were set up in offices throughout the airline's Asia Pacific network.

Support for the IEDP Foundation

The first installments from that fund raising – a check for US$4,000 was handed on Friday, January 21, 2005, to David Mendoza, the Fundraising Coordinator for the IDEP Foundation in Bali.

Dara Mustika, the Bali-based manager for the Airline, said she felt deeply moved by the generosity of her fellow workers at Continental. Dara commented, "both as an Indonesian and as a person with direct family roots in Aceh, the gift collected directly from the personal funds of my fellow workers at the Airline make me so very proud to be privileged to work each day among such caring and concerned colleagues."


IDEP – The Foundation for Indonesian Development of Education and Permaculture has taken an active roll in Aceh Aid by delivering appropriate direct assistance through its local network of NGOs in Sumatra. It has launched vessels filled with emergency supplies from West Sumatra ports to visit remote island and coastal villages along the North Sumatra Coast, many of them little touched by the relief efforts being conducted elsewhere.

IDEP was selected by the employees of Continental Micronesia because of that organization's innovative and effective approach to extending emergency aid to the people of Aceh.
