It is about respect of the individual and for human life itself

Preamble

Refugees and Migrants: As a rule, the world's population of refugees is largely constituted by people fleeing from man-made conflicts or natural disasters.

Nowadays, a small part of the world's registered refugees flees from natural disasters, however, this number is expected to rise significantly when the effects of global warming or cooling (following geographic zones) with severe weather and the risks of water elevation across the globe, will be coming through. Most recently certain articles and scientific reports have been released saying that a series of violent earthquakes will hit the globe in the next  24 months, caused by the perturbations of the planetary cycle (solar winds) and the modification of the magnetic north pole (also registered in the past) at a time when our planet was very lightly populated. 

Migrants: An even smaller part is officially considered Migrants - this group can also be considered as refugees. Migrants typically fly away from developing countries (third world countries) where the possibility of personal development and the possibility a tolerable standard of living is impossible.

Background:

Without there being any reason to categorize the issues, things interfere and, as a global society we are faced with completely unthinkable issues - which in the short term can lead to further conflicts and collapse in recognized political unions and structures.

We do not wish to take position in the political arena, but it is fair to note that we see nationalism flourishing in both America and in many European countries - a significant move to the extreme nationalist is taking place during these years, calling for the protection of the territory.

The traditional big donor countries see their economy being under pressure. National welfare costs do not explode because more welfare is given - but because of the introduction of control agencies at all levels in public administrations starting at the beginning of the financial crisis at the end of the last decade. At the same time, the conflicts which the Western Alliance has started or participated in has been an expensive politics. All together what has happened has reduced the amount of aid funds significantly and all Western countries have cut the appropriations during the last 3 years.

Politicians, and the people's desire to maintain social stability have undermined the sense of responsibility to the world's weakest, a lack of empathy, which visibly results in disrespect for the individual and for all communities.

The whole western approach to the problems of rising refugee fleeing from conflict areas or natural disasters, into neighboring countries and in many cases out in the world, is characterized by protectionism - politicians have spread the tendency for policy to be based on the fear of change.

We are facing several intimidating side effects of these political flows. The number of slaves in the world has exploded and is the highest in human history. People are exploited by slaveholders for their own greed as free labor and increasingly in the form of prostitution and physical exploitation. The trafficking of human beings (adults and children) is increasing all over the world, which should be considered a human involution and a total loss of a social acquisition built over the last three centuries. 

The handling of conflicts and thus refugee flows has not changed over the past 70 years.

As a rule, the international community does not want to create permanent accommodation for refugees, but aim to establish a temporary accommodation where tents appears to be the most widely used solution. This solution was perpetuated without any modification, even though history has shown that people living as refugees have this status for a minimum of + 20 years.

Without any valid reason, the international organizations have established a policy of not involving the residents in the planning of how to run the daily operations and the camp itself, thus depriving refugees of an important element in their pursuit of a common life - the right to self-determination.

It has become a mantra among special European leaders - that refugees must be helped in their local area, which in a European context means in neighboring countries, this means that the clear majority of refugees are simply kept alive - without any activity, personal development or education.

Without formation, education and personal development, a people will simply regress or even die – now if the relief efforts are primarily based on keeping people physically alive, the risk is that by enforcing this policy more than one generation will be lost during the time refugees are under official refugee status. 

Future conflicts:

All studies point to an increasing number of national and regional conflicts where religious and ethnic cleansing (Ex. Darfour, Somalia, etc.) will be part of the conflict picture. A great many researchers believe we are heading into a worldwide religious war where believers from all faiths will fight each other, driven by an increased radicalization, primarily recruited among marginalized groups in virtually all religions.

Refugee flows will be massive - entire populations will be driven away from their home and homelands this will cause enormous collective traumas. With new refugee flows of +1 one million people in several places at the same time, conflict resolution, trauma treatment and immediate help will be needed at an unprecedented scale.

It's about making a difference

The first condition for survival as a refugee is that the basic necessities of life are present, people must have roof over their heads, the possibility of medical treatment, food, security and safety for himself/herself and his/her family. 

Many refugees have experienced how their self-determination and initiative have been destroyed from the moment they have been placed in a refugee camp. Due to the scale of people in need - in recent years, a methodology has been developed in which organizations take responsibility for the individual to an extent resembling oppression.

Our goal is to include the refugees - and in the registration of the individual, get a clear overview of competences and education. Refugees themselves should be seen as a resource and to a lesser extent, as a victim. By including refugees - a process is initiated that will minimize any trauma and start a healing process. Normality and chores help the individual refugee, while reducing resource consumption, as well as allowing refugees to earn money (local currency) that can be used for additional necessities.

Use of local currency - As a means of payment, the host country encourages the refugees to treat refugees properly. The actual presence of refugees will generate income for the country if the correct setup is established. After the chaos period - it is crucial that most necessities are purchased in the local economy or in the immediate neighborhood, (this to a limit where the prices will not sky rise and damage the local economy with the appearance of a “black market”) - making the acceptance of the foreigners' presence more acceptable.

Children and young people suffer more in refugee camps - and therefore the concept of normality is most important for them. School-seeking children - should receive education organized rapidly by the children's countrymen at the latest one month after arrival at the camp by their own compatriots in the camp.

Fake News - Populist angling of even the worst news

The world has over the last three years experienced a new kind of trend – politicians, decision makers, commentators and social media, the so-called new newscasters, has been spreading false news and thereby helping to create an unworldly image of reality. 

In the Mediterranean, where refugees from Turkey and Libya, respectively, have sailed to Greece, Malta and Italy. The EU regulators issued reports on the number of deaths from month to month. With a maximum figure given at the end of 2015, for that year, they gave the number of approximately 4,400 dead – it is inexcusable that the EU hasn’t told the European population that they together with local fishermen in the same period have fished more than 12,000 bodies out of the water. It was an attempt to conceal the facts – but if revealed it might have been a game changer - changing the opinion from negative against the refugees to a more understanding approach.

As an organization, it is vital that we help to tell the truth and make sure it is not manipulated.  We will strive to be the first on the spot using our presence in order to have a first real estimate of the damages and to show the real inhuman suffering - and in the media struggle to convey the truth. We must do this to inform the outside world about the tragedies we see - not to elevate ourselves – but to enhance the understanding of the problems facing humanity. 

Basically, we do not want to create fear - we are out there where it hurts to create hope. And hope is crucial for people - both out there where people suffer and at home in front of the computer or the TV screen. Compassion - in the form of a smile, a dollar in the homeless bucket or a helping hand in a difficult situation can make a world of difference. As an organization, we are able to spread this message – as we are the ones not only hoping for a better world but working to achieve it every day.

With military precision, we help the world's most vulnerable

There are three phases in any operation of helping people from man made conflicts or natural disasters. 

The chaos phase, where we are in the midst of the disaster development, and where the extent of the disaster is to be estimated. 


The normality phase, where daily life is structured and where refugees are activated in everyday activities.


The settlement and dismantling phase, where refugees must proceed either as quota refugees under the UN, back to their home country or where it is decided that the residents and the camp must have a permanent status.

Chaos phase:

Every effort starts by analyzing the scale of the ongoing disaster and figuring out several scenarios for how the situation will develop. Eyes on and intelligence are crucial for assessing the scope of a future effort and for putting the right resources in place.

Practically, a program manager will be appointed among one of the organization's project managers. He has overall responsibility for the operation and will receive allocated resources among the organization's project assistants, who immediately gather information about locality, access conditions, transport corridors, the conflicts parties if not a natural event, which NGOs may already have missions in the area, etc.

As this happens, we send a team of investigators and security personnel in the field group (typically 5 men) who will be reporting directly to the headquarters, which analyzes the information received from the group on earth and from the various intelligence services we have cooperation with and access to.

All information is gathered in a physical and visual command center - all involved can submit information and retrieve information from. The center will have satellite connection to the people on the ground and information channels for all external sources and collaborators.

During the first 48 hours, a credible picture of the situation will be established and based on this an action plan and budget will be established to allocate funds and start a first effort.

Once the plan is compiled - the plan for the committee is presented, which is the first instance to approve the technical content and agrees that the approach described in the plan is feasible, at the same time approving the budget. A summary of the situation and the plan will be sent to Fulmina Human Resources for allocation of funds. The approval procedure must be possible for a maximum of 12 hours, so that the plan can be implemented immediately within 72 hours after the first intelligence enters the command center. 

After the plan, budget and implementation have been approved, the project manager will launch a wide range of actions based on how the plan will be performed.

Organizations that naturally have a presence in the area concerned are contacted and agree on concrete cooperation and interfaces are established - so that a broad foundation for the task solution is created.

The project coordinator appointed by the project manager is sent to the area where he meets the investigation team. Project workers are activated and sent together with security personnel within 24 hours after the project coordinator has connected with the ground team. 

As this happens, our own sub-organizations, warehousing, packaging and logistics are activated, and shipment plans are established.

Project workers are activated and the team to be deployed is gathered together with the designated security personnel. It is the intention that, within 72 hours after the first report of the survey team has been processed, we will have people on the ground and no later than 48 hours later we will be operational.

The course of operations is evaluated on a regular basis and every three days a standardized status report must be prepared (the first 3 months) giving an overview of the status of the action and, if necessary, necessary additional allocations in the form of funds, personnel, equipment, food and consumables.

When the camp opens it is vital that we use the registration process to evaluate every incoming refugee and find the ones who are natural opinion formers. The future culture of the camp is set during these first days – so it is vital that we provide the best service and understanding for every incoming resident and at the same time set the basic rules. 

During the first 3 months of the company setup, the procedure will be trained (and continuously improved) this will take place over and over again in the same way we do in the military – everyone working at the command center, on the ground, later executing the operation will know exactly what is expected and how.

Normality phase:

After the chaos phase, where the first organization will take place day by day, a new analysis of the extent of the disaster begins and an assessment of the program will be taken immediately, part of this is to know how long the organization will be involved and the material and financial extent of the involvement.

The normality phase involves the involvement of the residents who, in a democratic process, must elect representatives to a resident council, the resident council shall be part of the camp leadership and appoint several representatives who will solve many tasks, including the framework for medical treatment, school offers, leisure activities, etc.

If, due to the extent of the conflict, the residents seem to get a permanent status - there must be in-depth discussion with the host country's political leadership, which ultimately will allow the residents to get a new status. These negotiations are traditionally quite extensive and, in most cases, only to settle with an agreement on investment in the host country itself.

If permits are granted for a more permanent status - it must be decided whether real houses will be built for residents including, public buildings in the form of administration, medical clinic, schools, etc. 

It will be decided how to organize the infrastructure in the tenant. All of this requires that the organization's construction group is to be involved and that discussions between the resident’s council and the builders result in a plan followed by a budget that will follow the previously mentioned approval procedures. 

One of the essential elements of a more permanent establishment of the camp is to create jobs for the residents in the form of small production units. As a part of the processing of the trauma that the residents naturally struggle with, daily work is paramount.

In case of settlement and dismantling phase

Most of contemporary conflicts contain excessive material destruction, and there are only a few refugees who can move home. There will, of course, be some depopulation of camps, either the residents chose to travel on their own to a place where they have family or especially the families being pulled out by the UN quota refugee system offering a refugee status in a secure country. 

If the camp gets a permanent status, buildings are left behind for further use by the residents and owned by the host country. If the residents do not obtain permanent status and camp is going to be closed, a cleanup work will be carried out. 95% of the materials being brought in to the camps can be reused either directly in the form they have or in recycling program.

It is important that a complete cleanup is performed – as this is the only way that the organization will be welcomed in other countries. Most of the places that the organizations work is needed is in underprivileged countries where the population is struggling to survive. As an organization we don’t want the citizens of the country, to feel that the refugees or our presence has been a burden.

The operational work

Organization:

The entire future operation will be divided into 4 companies, all of which are owned by one Humanitarian investment company, which is again owned by the Fulmina Human Resources Foundation. 

The establishment of the humanitarian structure by the investment company is created for practical, technical and supervisory reasons for the allocation of funds. 

However, in the preparation of this plan, it has become crucial that decisions regarding efforts and operations are taken in a broader forum - why it is proposed that the Fulmina Human Resource Foundation establish a global committee that initially approves programs that may be initiated prior to the Fulmina Human Resources Foundation are granting funds for the efforts.

FHR HOLDING ApS

Investment company for subsidiaries - whose sole function is to control the allocation of funds.

SRT WORLD A/S (Headquarter Copenhagen) 

Is the corner stone in the entire operation - SRT stands for Special Response Team. The company's employees are specialists in a wide range of work. We have the best people to assess the extent of a disaster, best intelligence, best medical expertise and probably the best project managers and staff to handle the issues in the field. Our future administration is highly experienced, and the entire economic area is governed by a State Authorized Public Accountant with many years of experience in public administration. The total staff in the company is approximately 60 employees, all of whom will work out of Copenhagen headquarters. The employees will be of multi-ethnic origin and come from all continents. The company's future director will be recruited and is expected to be available for accession by the end of the first quarter of 2018 – until that time Mr. Claus Jensen will work as an interim. 

Selmar Group LLC (Headquarter Dallas, Texas)

Is SRT World A/S and Fulmina security organization. The company is headed by Delta commander Ayman Hatkwa and employs approximately 20 permanent employed Delta, Navy Seal and Ranger trained specialists. Overall, the company is expected to employ app. 50 full-time employees. The company helps ensure SRT World A/S personnel when posted, as well as offering close personal protection for key persons and personnel when necessary. As part of the company's future tasks, the company will perform logistics and transport in crisis areas. The company can recruit and insert up to 500 additional specialists within 7 working days on request. In the future, the company will work exclusively for the whole humanitarian Fulmina group.

Acero A/S (Headquarter, Horsens, Denmark)

The company is headed by Niels Arne Svendgaard. The company produces shelters, steel frame houses, public buildings (hospitals, schools, administration) as well as warehouse and logistics buildings. All constructions are produced as building kits so that houses and buildings can be assembled with the minimum use of tools at the site. Upon request, Acero A/S plans to build a stock of 10,000 energy-independent home units which can be shipped within 3 days if necessary. The build-up of the stock is expected to be completed by the end of the first half of 2018. In addition to the homes in the warehouse, we have planned that the company will increase its production capacity so that the company, using own production and subcontractors, can produce some 4,000 new homes per month. The company will employ approximately 80 full-time employees.

SRT Packing and Logistics A/S, (Headquarter, Copenhagen, Denmark)

The company is headed by Klaus Lundegaard. The company, receives, quality assures, packs and sends food, equipment and materials purchased by SRT World so that SRT World can deliver these to disaster areas within 72 hours of order. The company is expected to build a stock of long-term food (first effort) so that 100 thousand people can be feed for up to 10 days. At the same time, the company will have blankets, reflective blankets and personal hygiene packages, baby items in stock ready for dispatch. Just like the company will have a stock of certain emergency medications and equipment that may be required that can be distributed to SRT World's medical team. The company will build a capacity so that its employees can pack approximately 200 thousand food packages a month. If previous experiences are used, up to 4,000,000 meals could be produced by the contents of the packages. The company expects to employ approximately 60 full-time employees and a various number of young workers.
