Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF) has many longstanding partnerships throughout Africa to include Liberia, Sierra Leone, Malawi, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe. We also support medical shipments, solar projects, and Med-Surg trips in many other locations throughout the continent and are always seeking to form new relationships to support those in need.

During the last 6 months of 2021, BBF sent several 40’ container shipments of medical supplies and equipment to the Healey Foundation in Sierra Leone and the Medical Benevolence Foundation in Malawi. The contents of both shipments were distributed throughout networks of healthcare facilities within the region. Additionally, a separate 40’ container of medical supplies and equipment was sent to our partner, St. Joseph’s Hospital and School of Nursing in Limbe, Malawi.

We were able to provide the organization, Life for Relief and Development, with medical shipments and supplies along with (requested) brand-new birthing and operating tables to a hospital in Mozambique. Through our partners at Pittsburgh-based Mission Vision, BBF was able to arrange an air-shipment of eyeglasses to Kenya.

Besides healthcare cargo, we strengthened our infrastructure mission with continued support of solar power projects. BBF assists with funding for the purchases of the solar panels, installation, and maintenance of solar generating systems for rural health clinics which have been selected by the Ministry of Health in Liberia.

Brother’s Brother Foundation is deeply grateful for these critical partnerships throughout the African continent which has allowed us to not only bridge the gap between aid and sustainability but allowed us the opportunity to support localized programs and provide essential resources in the areas of healthcare, infrastructure, disaster response, and education (H.I.D.E). We look forward to the opportunities to serve Africa in 2022.
