BBF has responded to the COVID-19 crisis by providing Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to our partners here at home, nationally and around the world. As a PA VOAD (Volunteer Organization Active in Disaster), we are working closely with local government agencies, major healthcare providers and front-line responders in the greater Pittsburgh region. In addition to hospitals, these local efforts focus on clinics serving the underprivileged and often homeless or otherwise in need members of society. We are also prepared to provide equipment, supplies, and hospital beds as requested.
I’ll start again by wishing everyone well as we continue working through the trials and tribulations of life in the age of COVID-19. You’ll be pleased to know that BBF has expanded its response to the pandemic by providing personal protective equipment (PPE) to a widening array of partners primarily serving the most vulnerable members of our community. These efforts complement an actual year over year increase in our normal relief work thanks to the unrelenting work of dedicated staff members and your invaluable support.
Students at Áurea Quiles High School started their academic semester today in the tents located at the Osvaldo Gutierrez Stadium.
Did you know that many schoolgirls across the globe often miss school during their period? Due to taboos around menstruation, lack of menstrual products, and fear of staining, girls miss out on their normal activities including school attendance. This hinders their ability to keep up with the male students, and puts them at an educational disadvantage. We at Brother’s Brother are passionate about equal opportunities for people of all ages and genders, which is why we have set out to confront this issue.
