BROTHER’S BROTHER FOUNDATION
Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF) continues working with the Philippine American Medical Society of Western Pennsylvania (PAMS of WP) to provide short term and long term assistance in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda which devastated parts of the central Philippines. BBF’s pharmaceutical donors have made additional medications available as a contribution to BBF’s Philippine disaster relief efforts. BBF anticipates shipping these donations of much-needed antibiotics, antihypertensives and other medications to partners on the ground in the affected areas in the Philippines.
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.
