Global Response Management
Global Response Management (GRM) is an international medical NGO registered in the United States as a 501(c)(3) organization. We exist to bring emergency pre-hospital care and training to those living in or displaced from conflict zones, with a focus on the Middle East, operating in high-risk areas where others cannot. Our network of experienced medical personnel is dedicated to working with and training local populations in trauma and pre-hospital care based on TCCC principals to increase survivability in low-resource-high-risk areas. By working with medical professionals from a variety of backgrounds, we bring a diverse team to populations in critical need.
To provide and coordinate quality emergency and trauma care in low-resource and high-risk areas.
To mobilize and innovate in the field of trauma and pre-hospital care, serving those in high-risk areas.
Grit: We go into the field with determination, courage, and strength of purpose.
Respect: We earn trust and confidence of local communities by working with them directly, learning from them as they learn from us.
Impartiality: We deliver aid to all, no one is ever rejected based on ethnic origin, nationality, political allegiance, religion, gender, or sexuality.
Accountability: We maintain fiscal and operational transparency to ensure we operate at maximum effectiveness.
FROM THE FIELD
There are many ways you can help.
To do our work in the places we work, everything costs money. From flying in a volunteer, their visa, and insurance; to the vehicles that bring them to the clinics and fuel for those vehicles. Generators for power, extra water on those 128-degree days, or the power of a cold Coke after an incredibly difficult day. Big or small it all counts and we make sure it is all spent where it should be.
GRM is always looking at new deployments and missions as the world is constantly changing. We made ourselves Global Response Management instead of Medicine so that we can engage in more projects than just front-line medicine. Not a medic or Doctor? sign-up anyway, you never know when a new mission will arise that would suit your skill-set. You can always decline or choose not to deploy, that is why it's called volunteering.
Word of mouth is the greatest advertising possible. Please share, like, comment, post, tweet, and snap about Global Response Management. Help us get the word out about what we do and what we are about. Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful and committed citizens can change the world.
As GRM expands operations, we find that it is usually easier to purchase supplies like gauze, Ace wraps, IV's, Tape, syringes, cleaning supplies and gloves in the country of our response. However many of these countries don't have the more technical stuff that is very important to our mission. Trauma Supplies: Hemostatic agents, IO's, Tourniquets, chest seals, headlamps, PPE, trauma sheers are all nearly impossible to find overseas. Email us with any questions regarding sending medical supplies.
We will always take help with fundraising. Maybe you know someone that has a business or restaurant that would help put on an event. Possible your corporation could help us with annual donations. Please email us with any and all ideas on helping us further expand GRM.
As a registered 501c3 all donated funds and materials can and should be written off of your taxes.
