EMERGENCY RELIEF: Disrupting the traditional charity model to deliver immediate aid in Ukraine

Entered in Emergency Relief

Objective

Global Empowerment Mission's goal as a first responder is to bridge the gap between first response and sustainable, community-sourced development.

When responding to a disaster, we implement a 3-phase response, limiting the amount of time between first response and sustainable development. By supplying aid immediately and limiting the period of time vulnerable people are displaced, we save lives and provide as many opportunities as possible for people to live safe and healthy lives. 

During our first 100 days on the ground in Ukraine, we established viable logistical operations, extracted people in war-torn areas, relocated refugees, and delivered critical aid supplies throughout the region. After the first 100 days, we began to impliment our second and third response phases, detailed below.

Strategy

GEM strategically approaches disasters through three stages:

FIRST RESPONSE PHASE - DISASTER RELIEF

GEM’s immediate response is to restore hope and opportunity in the lives of those most affected.

SECOND RESPONSE PHASE - THE GAP PERIOD

This is the time between first response and government or other permanent infrastructure. The goal is to minimize the time in which this gap period exists

THIRD RESPONSE PHASE - SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

GEM’s long-term response is in coordination with governments and public-private partners. The goal to create a self-sufficient and thriving community.
