BROTHER'S BROTHER FOUNDATION WORKING IN COORDINATION WITH DUQUESNE UNIVERSITY SENDS CONTAINER SHIPMENT TO LIBERIA WEDNESDAY, JUNE 30, 2010.

Brother's Brother Foundation (BBF) is sending a requested container of medical donations to ELWA Hospital in Liberia. Financial support for the shipping comes from a donation by Mr. Robert Peirce. Mr. Peirce has made several trips to Liberia and established a number of contacts with medical facilities including ELWA Hospital and Buchannan Hospital.

A 40' ocean-going container of requested medical supplies for Liberia will load at 9:00 am tomorrow, Wednesday, June 30th at BBF's warehouse. This shipment will contain surgical instruments, surgical table, birthing bed, 15 hospital beds and computers among other requested supplies.

Duquesne University's Physician Assistant program, also with support from Mr. Peirce, is sending a team of students who will be working in ELWA Hospital. They leave Pittsburgh on July 1 and will be hand-carrying requested pharmaceuticals donated by BBF as well as laptop computers donated by community individuals.

BBF is a 56-year old Pittsburgh-based international charity with a newly opened warehouse in Fairfax, Virginia.  BBF has provided over 100,000 tons of medical supplies, textbooks, food, seeds, and other humanitarian supplies to people around the world in over 140 countries.  With the help of gifts from the general public, corporations and foundations, in 2013 BBF sent product contributions to those in need in 64 countries.  These shipments were the equivalent of 252 tractor trailer loads.  Also in 2013, BBF provided supplies for 321 medical and humanitarian hand-carry mission trips.  Within the last month the Virginia warehouse assisted with supplies for two containers to the affected countries in Africa.

Forbes Magazine highlighted BBF as one of only three charities with a 100% rating for both fundraising efficiency and charitable commitment of the 50 largest charities reviewed in November 2013.  The Better Business Bureau continues to give BBF its “Wise Giving Alliance Standards” seal of approval.  BBF achieved a 4-star rating for sound fiscal management and commitment to accountability and transparency from Charity Navigator.
