IEM Gives Back: Supporting Communities in Need

Morrisville, NC, November 28, 2023 — IEM, the world’s largest woman- and minority-owned firm of its kind, gives back and supports organizations across the globe to reach communities, families, and individuals in need. This year, the organizations supported worked to address a variety of challenges, including international disaster relief and children’s well-being efforts, pediatric medical care, community improvement, and housing repair.

IEM Gives Back after Turkey and Syria Earthquakes

Following the devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, IEM donated over $15,000 to humanitarian nonprofit organizations for ongoing recovery efforts.

IEM donated to World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit organization that provides fresh meals in response to crises around the world. Their team worked hand-in-hand with other key humanitarian organizations to deliver more than 200,000 meals daily across Turkey and Syria. During the first month after the earthquake, over 10 million meals were provided.

Additionally, IEM donated to Save the Children, which ensures children in the United States and around the world are healthy, educated, and protected. For over 100 years, Save the Children has helped children living in crisis. Their team provided child-focused psychosocial support and life-saving assistance to children and families in Turkey and Syria. IEM’s donation supported the organization’s Children’s Emergency Fund, which helps children prepare for and recover from disasters globally.

IEM Supports Local Communities

IEM Health also donated nearly $90,000 in medical supplies to Texas Children’s Hospital, the nation’s largest pediatric hospital system. The items, originally intended for COVID-19 pandemic response, will be used for first responder training, emergency response, preparation, and planning.

IEM also supported the Junior League of Tallahassee through a $5,000 donation. This donation assists the organization’s efforts to address poverty, food insecurity, and homelessness in Tallahassee, Florida’s poorest zip code. IEM proudly supports its mission to advance women’s leadership for meaningful community impact through volunteer action, collaboration, and training.

Finally, IEM Puerto Rico joined Techos Pa’ Mi Gente for their Raise the Roof 5K charity event in Puerto Rico. This event raised awareness and funds to support remaining roof repair needs in the region from hurricanes Maria and Fiona. It was a pleasure to support this event that aligns with IEM’s work on the island to help families recover and rebuild resiliently.

“We are gratified to donate to and support organizations that help communities around the nation and world,” said IEM Founder, President, and CEO Madhu Beriwal. “IEM stands firm on our commitment to build stronger, more resilient communities. We are honored to demonstrate that we are here to help support all communities through diverse needs and challenges.”

IEM’s mission is to build a safe, secure, and resilient world. Through these contributions and donations, IEM gives back and supports community improvement, relief, and resilience efforts.
