Earlier I mentioned that Uplift would benefit from a series of bases strategically placed around the globe, to ensure prompt response to emergencies in disaster vulnerable areas.

Enter UNHRD.  United Nations Humanitarian Response Depot is a WFP Network able to deliver humanitarian relief items worldwide within 24/48 hrs. There are five UNHRD, at Panama, Ghana, Italy, Malaysia and Dubai. Each one has access to warehouses, storage, and port facilities.  Uplift would be an addition to the UNHRD, as facilities for airship maintenance, and as an extension of services for NGOs.
