In January of 2019, GRM put a small team on the ground in Aden, Yemen to evaluate and assist in the humanitarian crisis taking place because of the Yemeni Civil War. We identified Duriyhami, a desert region south of Al Hudaydah, the port city which brings in over 90% of the country’s food resources, as a critical area.

GRM provided the only UNHCR assessment of the region and supplied critical feedback to the United Nations, which laid the groundwork for international aid organizations to respond with critically needed services and support.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed and was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine. Pete was the bedrock of GRM, serving as Board President for 4 years. In January, Pete stepped away from GRM to work with Global Outreach Doctors on their Ukraine mission and was killed while rendering aid.

This is a stark reminder of the perils rescue and aid workers face in conflict zones as they serve citizens caught in the crossfire. Pete was just 33 years old, but lived a life in service of others, first as a decorated US Marine and then in humanitarian aid. GRM will strive to honor his legacy and the selfless service he practiced.

We fully support Pete’s family, friends, and colleagues during this devastating time.
