Solving humanitarian challenges in the midst of disaster

MAUI Wildfires: to help, please donate or drop off donations.

IMPORTANT ONE, please watch our “Two Years in Ukraine” documentary style video showing the complex nature of what we do. The Russian invasion of Ukraine has created the largest humanitarian disaster in Europe since World War II. Our teams responded immediately and arrived on the Polish border of Medyka on February 25, 2022. Since then, we have been working here diligently and methodically every day. We couldn’t be more proud of our @globalempowermentmission teams. In the last two years GEM supported Ukrainians with $246,483,952 (cash and supplies) in various programs. We distributed 3,295 truckloads of aid, replaced 100,114 windows, distributed 29,568,250 seeds, delivered 1534 generators, relocated 38,892 people to over 50 countries and rebuilt 257 projects. Our dollar versus impact ratio is amongst the highest possible therefore giving us a 100% rating at @charitynav for two straight years. Our work in 2023 was all made possible thanks to our partnership with the Howard G. Buffett Foundation. No public donations to GEM were used in Ukraine in 2023. Thank you to @bethennyfrankel @handlerrich @jefferies @pxdinstas @pbunitedway Nicole and David Tepper, @good360usa @amazon @virginunite @flexport @shannonsedg @w4ua_summit and countless others. It was you who supported us in 2022 and helped us set up the proper systems to be able to respond to this crisis for the long haul. Special thanks to GEM UA Ops director @andrew.negrych and our entire UA team. Thank you to @globalempowermentmissioneur’s @majelheart and our GEM Europe team. Thank you to our front line teams who risk their lives everyday. Thank you to our US teams and COO @emilymfullmer, our board of directors and all of our supporters. Together we are stronger, together we will prevail. #ukraine #hgbf #bstrong

14 years ago today, Haiti was ravaged by a massive earthquake that devastated much of the country. The mission to provide aid and disaster relief became the beginning of what GEM has become today. We are so proud of all the students that have been a part of GEM’s programs in Haiti. On this day of remembrance, we wanted to share a letter from our Haiti students: “Words won’t be enough to express how blessed we feel to have you. We, young Haitian people, having GEM in our lives, show us what we could become, and are still fighting today to make our dreams come true with your and God’s help. You never feel exhausted with us. You still share love, hard work, teaching us to become independent, have good health by teaching us to share with others in need, to be creative, to become the perfect version of ourselves. The person I am today is different from that person I was 14 years ago. All is because of you. We don’t know how the future will be, but we will make sure to make you proud. We will be the captains of our own destiny. It’s been 14 years today since you’ve been restoring hope and creating opportunities for us. GEM Haiti’s 🇭🇹 impact is directly beneficial to thousands of people here in Haiti since you began your missions here. Many students have graduated from high schools, professional/technical schools, and many are still in school so that their lives can be shaped for a better future. We thank GEM for who we are today because of your great work. Thank you so much, GEM. God bless you, and all who have contributed over the last 14 years to the person we are now, and will be in the future. Love you.” #gemhaiti #empowerment #education #humanitarian #haiti #humanity #futureleaders
