Phase 1:

Disaster Relief

Global Empowerment Mission responded in its first phase by partnering with Starbucks and Angel Flight East.

117 boxes of medical aid and supplies, totaling 1,654 lbs. were transported from Fort Lauderdale, FL to Beirut.

In the wake of the warehouse explosion on August 4th, hospitals in Beirut found themselves without the medical supplies so desperately needed to treat those who were impacted. In collaboration with Starbucks, the critical supplies traveled 16,679 miles and into the hands of the people who needed it the most.”
