“We have made great strides toward improving the quality of life for thousands of Haitians living in rural villages. We have witnessed miraculous transformations in communities where men, women and children once cut-off from basic necessities, now have access to healthcare, education, job training and entrepreneurship. Entire villages are on the road to becoming self-sustaining. However, we still have much more work to do and we need South Florida’s help.” Former Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe

South Floridians have been true friends, and champions for the people of Haiti. Our goal, with your support, is to end the suffering of thousands of people by providing them with the tools necessary to succeed, and to build a better future for generations to come,” said Laurent Lamothe, Haiti’s former Prime Minister and the son of noted scholar Dr. Louis G. Lamothe, for whom the foundation was named.

Global Empowerment Mission (GEM) was founded by Michael Capponi, an American businessman and humanitarian.

Famed Miami doctor Rudy Moise and former Haitian Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe spoke at a press conference held in Miami, Florida Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Famed Miami doctor Rudy Moise attended the press conference and donated $2,500.00 to the Dr. Louis G. Lamothe Foundation. “The foundation takes care of hundreds of children in the most remote areas of Haiti,” stated Moise.

The 2nd Annual GEM Gala will be held Saturday, April 8, 2017, at 7:30 p.m., at Island Gardens, located at 888 MacArthur Causeway, Miami, Florida 33132.
