Bucha Community Rebuilds

GEM in partnership with the Bucha City Council & Life Quality UA has fully activated its phase 2-3 programs. This program is aimed to bring hope back to many Bucha communities by starting light repairs on homes, apartment buildings, schools and hospitals. 

Each project is measured by a cost per human impact analysis. It also reverses a massive global refugee crisis, by enabling refugees to come back home. By returning home, they’re positively impacting their neighborhoods and local economy. 

100% of these funds will be solely used for these projects.

Mr. Fedoruk credited the nonprofit Global Empowerment Mission, a disaster-relief nonprofit, with providing the much-needed assistance to get the town’s 15 schools rebuilt so that most could open on Sept. 1.

Multi-Hospital Projects

We have been on the ground in the affected areas since day one. Immediately we established a home-base and major distribution points to offer food, water, hygiene, and cleaning supplies. This initiative has since expanded to offer all types of aid, including pet food, new mattresses, baby needs, medical supplies, and more. By working with our long-standing partners, such as Good360, Amazon, and many others, we are able to offer large scale and quick relief to those affected. Additionally, we have also amassed aid from local community drives from all over the United States.

We have active distribution hubs around Fort Myers and Pine Island, working to assist as many as individuals as possible. Additionally, we work with a network of over 100 local volunteers who are able to personally deliver aid to those who are unable to make it to our distribution points.

As our response continues and expands, (based on needs), we will be actively involved in reconstruction and sustainable development efforts for the foreseeable future.

GEM is the official partner of Miami-Dade County and multiple municipalities. We are also working in tandem with the Florida Division of Emergency Management supporting local shelters.

GEM labour-funded home rebuilds

In partnership with Bucha City Council and Life Quality, GEM has provided labour for the rebuilding efforts of homes in the Bucha district. In August and September, 116 homes were repaired, 22 are currently in the process of being repaired, and 127 are having their needs assessed and construction efforts are to begin right away. These are all family homes that needed new roofing, windows, heating systems, and similar.

Vokzalna Street Project

Vokzalna Street is located in Bucha, Ukraine and was the location of the documented tragic ‘massacre’ in Bucha. The homes, buildings, and street itself were extremely damaged, and many lives were lost.

Thanks to the support of the Howard G. Buffet Foundation, GEM was able to begin a major project aimed on repairing the street, alongside its ‘Hope for Bucha’ program. At the end of October, construction began. The work consisted of major repairs on 10 damaged homes, complete rebuilds of 11 homes, and the repaving of the street, as well as other minor works. This work continues daily, and is also possible thanks to Life Quality and the Bucha City Council.
