BROTHER’S BROTHER FOUNDATION
 and PHILIPPINE AMERICAN MEDICAL SOCIETY OF W. PA
LOAD 40’CONTAINER OF MEDICAL SUPPLIES AND EQUIPMENT FOR URDANETA HOSPITAL IN PANGASINAN, PHILIPPINES

Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF) and the Philippine American Medical Society of Western PA (PAMS) are sending a 40 foot container of medical supplies and equipment for Urdaneta District Hospital in Pangasinan, Philippines.  The container will load at 9:30 AM on Thursday, November 21, 2013 at BBF’s Northside warehouse.    
BBF continues to work with PAMS of W. PA to provide short term and long term assistance in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda which devastated parts of the central Philippines.  BBF has received offers of over 200,000 bottles of antibiotics and malarial and other medications, as well as emergency supplies for the 10,000,000 people affected by disaster.

On Tuesday, November 12th, BBF shipped 974 bottles of antibiotics and other medications to Hospitals for Humanity, which is sending their emergency response team comprised of 15 doctors to the Philippines on November 16th.  The Hospitals for Humanity team is traveling to Cebu and plans to send a mission to the Philippines once a month until the situation improves.

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.
