Water Security. 21st Century Solutions to 21st Century Problems

Veola, thank you for the reminder.

We are coming together, and BEMA still needs all members input.

This photo could be anywhere in the world, but is more prevalent in our communities within the diaspora.  From the U.S., to the Caribbean, the Middle East, and the nations of Africa.  We all need to imagine walking in someone else’s shoes.

You, and I as members of BEMA will continue to stress the systems approach, innovative, effective, and efficient method to address our basic needs of shelter, water, and food security for normal uses and specifically to address those needs during times of disaster.  Not a piecemeal approach of just digging a well, but an approach of how well water distribution and uses for not only basic needs but needs to address public health security and sustainability for the future of the individual, the family, and community.

As an veteran of the U.S. military in emergency management we can bring 21st Century solutions to resolve 21st Century problems, and no more standard or ‘business as usual’ methodology of 20th Century solutions to solve 21st Century problems.

Assisting communities in free training & education to take charge of their communities.

No one knows the needs of a community more than the community itself.  Assisting communities to utilize its’ most vital resource the ‘whole community’ every member of the community.  From the homeless, gang members (with their extended family), ex-offenders to our next generation leaders to be at the table.

Thanks again.
