Phase 1:

Disaster Relief

Global Empowerment Mission Bstrong has activated its first phase response to the Bronx fire disaster at 333 East 181 Street, Bronx NY.

We have committed an initial $150,000 in Bstrong cash cards for all the displaced former residents. In addition, we will provide our Family Necessities Kits for each family.

Our phase 2 program will encompass a relocation fund for all survivors.

Please see our work for the Surfside Collapse in 2021. We will be offering a similar program.
