June 16, 2021 – The Mount Vema Red Cross has confirmed on Tuesday that it has secured most of the funds needed to enable Handy Deed to start construction of the two hospital ships it ordered last year.
The Red Cross already secured more than 10% last year which was the requirement as part of the deal the organization agreed with Handy Deed the leading contractor and project management company of Mount Vema.
This year, with the Gollexi fully operational, and more companies betting on the
Mount Vema Stock Exchange, donations to the Mount Vema Red Cross are increasing, however the Red Cross needs this to continue to enable the organization to carry out its mission.
As a charity, the Mount Vema Red Cross relies heavily on voluntary contributions:

The Mount Vema Red Cross was established by His Mount Vema Majesty King Peter J. Goldishman - The Vema Seamount Authority on the 29 of April 2017, as the National Red Cross of the Kingdom of Mount Vema, established for humanitarian missions and to provide emergency assistance, disaster relief and mobilize individuals and communities to prepare and deal with and recover from a crisis.
The Society is not yet the designated Mount Vema affiliate of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies however, it hopes to join as observer to the International Federation's General Assembly in the future.
In addition to the two hospital ships, The Mount Vema Red Cross will be one of the few organizations within the Mount Vema Society with the construction of its floating headquarters at Number 1 Mount Vema Boulevard West, in Pashant, fully funded.
The confirmation yesterday is another indication of why the Government and Handy Deed have intensified efforts to find deals with foreign governments and shipyards worldwide to start building the hospital ships. Especially in countries with free ports, where ship building activities can easily flow to and from Mount Vema, and to the countries where the ships would be built to avoid the need for lengthy and sometimes time-consuming talks.
The two ships will be among the largest in the fleets of vessels to be built by Mount Vema. One of the vessels will function as a floating hospital to be used in Mount Vema during and after construction, and the other will provide emergency medical treatment facilities to other nations in times of natural disasters.
