In response to the multiple wildfires around Columbia, GEM LATAM has activated to help assist first responders and affected residents. Presently, we are purchasing fire gear for first responders.

$150 = gear for 1 person

$750 = gear for 5 people

$1500 = gear for 10 people

We are presently on the ground in Cundinamarca.
