Wuhan, China, Coronavirus Emergency Relief Response

In Press Releases by Brother's Brother Foundation

Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF), a 61-year-old Pittsburgh-based international aid agency, is sending assistance to Wuhan, China in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. Pittsburgh’s Sister City of Wuhan is at the epicenter of the growing International health concern. Having started as an effort to end polio and smallpox, BBF has worked for over six decades to impact the spread of global diseases.

Locally BBF is coordinating efforts with the Pittsburgh Chinese Cultural Center and the Asian Studies center at the University of Pittsburgh to ensure that aid is being channeled effectively and without unnecessary duplication of efforts. Discussions are ongoing with several other potential Pittsburgh based partners. To deliver needed aid, Brother’s Brother is partnering with both Chinese NGO’s and International NGO’s on the ground. Currently requested items include respiratory masks and Personal Protective Equipment.
