Phase 1:

Disaster Relief

In G.E.M.’s 11+ years of working in Haiti with 95+ mission trips, many important lessons have been learned. In an effort to have the aid supply chain scaled and streamlined, here’s GEM Bstrong plan of action:

G.E.M. is loading United Carrier Group semi-trucks with over 589 pallets totaling over $6,246,722 in relief supplies that will be shipped throughout remainder of 2021.

 

Supplies will service three main zones.

– Zone A: Departement Nippes / Epicenter region Changeaux / L’Asilles / Anse de Veau

– Zone B: Departement Sud / Les Cayes region

– Zone C: Grande Anse / Jeremie region

The supplies are donated to G.E.M. through major partnerships such as Good360, Take2Hope, South Florida Caribbean Strong, Ocean State Job Lot, USA 4 Vets, Goya Foods, Walmart, Amazon, and many more.

The first partial shipload arrived at the port of Miragoane in August. The second in October and the third is currently being worked on.

Any attempts to have large-scale public distributions would only lead to absolute chaos. To prevent this, we have partnered with reliable Haitian (only) community stakeholders and partners that operate year-round in the affected areas of the south coast.

Local Haitian orgs, churches, orphanages, schools, and hospitals will be recipients of the life-sustaining supplies. Food, beverages, tents, blankets, air mattresses, and over-the-counter medical supplies will be palletized at G.E.M. head quarters.

The port will be turned into a truck-only drive up. Each Haitian partner will send 1-3 box trucks depending on community size to pick up their supplies. The combined ship runs will fill over 62 Haitian trucks with all distributions being supervised by G.E.M. Haitian team members and executive teams. This program is in partnership with the D.P.C., Caribbean Consular Corps, and the Haitian Consulate.
