Phase 1:

Disaster Relief

Global Empowerment Mission responded in the first phase, disaster relief, by providing an immediate response to the civic emergency for those in the midst of turmoil in Venezuela in partnership with Motorrad Angels and the I Love Venezuela Foundation.

Thousands of people flee the country every day, mostly on foot, as the country has been unable to provide social services. As a result, Venezuelans face severe food and medicine shortages, as well as the continuing spread of infectious diseases.

Venezuela’s infrastructure has been poorly maintained, recently leading to a series of country-wide blackouts in March 2019 that left millions without power.

GEM Impact:

  • Organized and facilitated 3 mission trips
  • Supplied aid to 2,400+ refugees in Cucuta, Colombia
  • Supplied medicine and medical equipment to hospitals in Caracas, Venezuela

Partners

  • I Love Venezuela Org
  • MotorRad Angels
