Founded in honour of an individual characterized by dedication, care, and compassion, the David McAntony Gibson Foundation (DMGF), known as GlobalMedic, is a registered Canadian charity. Our mandate is to provide people affected by poverty, disaster and/or conflict with humanitarian aid —both on a domestic and global scale.
GlobalMedic was established in 1998 by Toronto Paramedic Rahul Singh, after the tragic loss of his closest friend that same year. David exemplified a rare spirit, extending his helping hand to those within his proximity and far beyond.
Our guiding principle, getting the Right Aid to the Right People at the Right Time. It propels our mission to deliver maximum aid impact with remarkable operational efficiency.
Rooted in the cornerstones of emergency response, GlobalMedic provides swift, pivotal intervention during critical moments of disaster and turmoil. Our portfolio includes six core Emergency Programs—Water, Food, RescUAV, Flood, Medical, and Shelter. Each are designed with a scalable and modular architecture. This adaptability ensures seamless integration, whether deployed nationally or internationally, tailored to the specific contours of the crisis.
At the core of our rapid response capability lies the globally deployable Rapid Response Team (RRT). The RRT is an assembly of emergency professionals and dedicated volunteers. The RRT spearheads aid delivery, embodying our unwavering commitment to timely and precision-targeted responses.
Fueled by innovation, GlobalMedic ceaselessly explores novel pathways, reimaging strategies, and unearthing fresh opportunities to extend our reach. The pursuit of operational efficiency and meaningful impact pervades every facet of our work, underscoring our dedication.
In tandem with our sister charity, GlobalFire, our impact is amplified. GlobalFire also reinforces worldwide emergency response capacities through comprehensive training and vital equipment provisions, thus enhancing community resilience across the globe.
